    For IQ see:
    Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Micro Four Thirds Zoom Lens Review
    Panasonic Lumix 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 G X Review
    Panasonic Lumix G VARIO 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II Lens Review

    DxOMark: Panasonic 14-42mm II vs Panasonic 14-42 X Vario vs m.Zuiko 12-50mm.
    See the Sharpness scores. The Panasonic 14-42mm II has very good sharpness.
    DxOMark - Compare lenses

    The new 14-42mm II has very good IQ at 14mm and at 42mm.
    It's very good at 42mm wide open (f5.6).
    And really I like the build quality. It feels and looks very good.
    zooming is much smoother.

    And very important for me: It has the same 46mm filtersize as the Panasonic pancakes (14mm and 20mm).
    I have 46mm ND and CPL filters.

    Lens looks like a great performer to me. However can you confirm that it has a metal mount? I've seen pics of metal AND plastic mounts.
