I'm developing a split personality.

With my latest purchase of a Panny 14-140 and hopeful sale of my Oly 14-42 kit lens all my glass will be Panasonic. This was not a planned decision as each lens purchase was individual.

I wonder what this is saying? None of the 4/3 lenses from Panasonic seemed attractive when I was solely with the larger system.

I'd be interested in comments from others particularly early adopters of MFT.

Bill,
I have the same disease. This is called panasonicisbetterthanolyitis.
I have the 17 and will probably keep it for the FOV. Otherwise, I like the contrast from the Panny glass.
I wouldn't worry, just judge each lens on it's own merit.

My big disease is...Iwantleica4/3itis. It seems there is no cure.

:rofl: haha that cracked me up :thumbup:

It seems I have Iwantleica4/3itis too :frown:

Anyway back to the topic, I agree with what you're saying about panasonic lenses being more superior, IMO the image quality is better and the build quality. I was testing a E-p1 with the 14-42 and it felt so cheap and plasticky kind of like a toy, on the otherhand the 14-45mm panny feels tough and built well also IMO seems sharper.
