    These issue with the lens is pronounced more so with the GX1 because of the camera's harsh shutter. If I am not mistaken, G5 has almost a silent shutter.

    Don't expect stellar IQ from this lens (as compared to the 20mm for example). Its IQ is equivalent to the non PZ 14-42 kit lens. The real benefit of this lens is its size given the zoom. So what's more important to you, the zoom capability in a small size, or better IQ, low light performance of the fixed 20mm field of vision?
