    That's crazy -- basically a free camera with the lens....

    If I didn't already have both a GF3 and a PZ 14-42 I'd get one. :)

    If I didn't already have the lens I'd likely buy it for the lens.

    I’ll have to defer to other forum members to comment in detail, I've read past complaints with the 14-42 PZ, though I've had no issues using mine. I sold my original/regular 14-42 (plastic mount) kit lens almost immediately after just a few shots (like 25?), so virtually no experience.

    The 14-42 PZ was part of a kit with my second GX1 body six months ago and has also received little use. I prefer a manual zoom lens and use a 12-35 f/2.8 as my everyday primary lens, but kept the little PZ as a back-up 'standard' or for use on an extra body as a 'snapshot' camera.

    The shots I've taken with the 14-42 PZ have been sharp, no complaints, and this lens is starting to get more use from me.
