Mooving from oly. 14-42 mk1 to pana. 14-45 can you call it an upgrde or just another slow kit lens?
I did the same thing. They say its the best kit lens and tests prove it is sharper but it is not faster. It did feel better made that the Oly, but did not focus as close which was a loss. In the end though, I sold all my kits to buy 3 primes and have not looked back (though if I had a lot of spare money i might by the proposed Panasonic 12-35x)
The lens is sharper, particularly at the long end, and it focuses much faster. To me, that made it an upgrade.
It's a better lens..by how much and if it's worth the extra money is up to you (after you check out sample images).
