You want the mkI? The mkII is the one that is CDAF optimized so it can focus faster on mu43 cameras.
I'm renting the mkII and has just bought one from a fellow member. It's already just under a second in AF in majority of situations. I can't imagine having to deal w/ an even slower AF in the mkI
I understand where he is coming from. I too am looking for the MK1. I manual focus everything even the one auto-focus lens I have. I rarely use auto focus on it, so i might as well look for the MK1 version and im sure it would cost less than the MK2, even used.. Besides because I use a Panasonic G1 and the auto-focus of the MK2 would be painfully slow on it anyway so it would be pointless for me to pay more for the MK1.
So yea i get where he is coming from.
Check out SLR Gear's review of the lens, as well as its comparison to the MkI:
Olympus Lens: Zooms - Olympus 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 II Zuiko Digital (Tested) - SLRgear.com!
Another reason that the mkII is better is that it has 7 shutter blades, so the bokeh will be nicer and more rounder than the mkI. Distortion and sharpness are a bit better, too.
