    Has anyone used it or are there any reviews anywhere, hows it compare to the Oly 40-150 or Pany 45-200?
    Being an "X" lens is the IQ meant to be superior to the other lenses?

    From what I've seen, IQ is nearly identical to the 45-200mm. I'm sure there are comparisons if you search around. The "X" is for power zoom.

    I've had one for a month and so far like it. The image quality isn't exceptional in any way, but pretty decent in most respects. It focuses fast, the power zoom is growing on me, I started out not using it at all and now use it almost exclusively. What really sells it for me is the size and weight, it's a good match for the GX1, easy to carry round all day, the whole point of mu-43 for me.
