Do you know how is updated version compares to the original 14-42mm or 14-42mm PZ lens?

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.

plastic as kit lens and metal sold separately, i hope that's the only difference
