    Has anyone tried using both of these lenses and is able to give me some feedback as to how they compare IQ wise?

    I have the Panasonic lens which I can use on my newly acquired E-P2 body but it looks very heavy compared to the Olympus version. I also have a GH2 and realise the Olympus lens will not have any IS on the Panasonic body but I am tending to use the Olympus most of the time now due to the very compact size and the great EFV

    There's a thread comparing the two on here somewhere - do a search or check under native lenses. IQ wise they're very very close. Size and weight, they're not close - advantage Olympus. But the Panasonic is stabilized and is optimized for video, so it depends on what you're looking for...
