Maybe I missed the update on this so please delete if this is a repost. Did they ever fix the problems with this lens? I'm asking because Amazon has it for $279 now I need something for the extra GF3 I have since I'm using the 14 f/2.5 on my E-M5...LOL. My wife prefers the pancake compactness of the 14-42X instead of the regular X. Considering I can get a used 14-42 for $99, I'm tempted to just get that instead of taking a chance on the X version. Any thoughts? Thanks!
