    First post in the picture section and first photos with the new GX1. I thought I'd got a soft copy of the PZ 14-42 X lens, but I think it must have been me getting used to the small form factor of MFT. Anyway, seem sharp enough for me, and all at the long (42mm) end of the zoom range.

    Soft? I think I can count the pollen particles on the bee.
    Very nice. Good use of shallow DOF. Is it the kit zoom?

    I've got the same lens (and body) but my copy is definately "soft" compared to yours. I bought my lens right when it came out and it hasn't yielded any keepers, so I don't use it at all.

    I wish I had your copy as I really like the small form factor of that lens.

    That seems very weird do you mean the quality is that bad that you have no decent shots at all.

    Did you get your PZ lens as part of a kit? or did you buy it separate.
