    Hey guys, im a happy owner of an EPL2 body plus kit lenses, which i sold ( the lenses) for the sake of getting the pancakes, 14mm and 20mm after that.

    and though i never liked kit lenses, i played a bit with the 14-42mm (while i was selling it) and though it is BIG (compared to a pancake) its IQ was amazing!. specially using it as a macro lens at 14mm. and now since i sold it, and got the new 14mm which is, it is small...ive been only playing with it for hours (got it last night, so this post might be deleted if im wrong) here at my office, and it seems that the shortest focus distance is less than with the oly kit lens?, is it just me, or in the field i will eat my words? other than that and the flickering noise that makes under bright light on my epl2 the color rendition of the lens...looks outstanding.
