    I recently bought and sold a G5 and was left with a profit and a 45-150mm f4-5.6 for my GH1.
    It continues to please me greatly and yet I see very little appreciation of it here compared to the rather 'junky' built OM equivalent.
    I also briefly kept the much maligned 14-42mm PZ and got some lovely results on my GF1.
    Here's one from the tele zoom...

    And here're a couple from the PZ 14-42mm pancake zoom.
    Frankly I was impressed.

    I know, chickens again... :)

    And now I'm on the hunt for a 14-45mm kit zoom.

    Yes the 14-45 is excellent, worth finding and buying,
    but are you trolling on the comments about the OM (sic) equivalent to your 45-150?

    I chose the 14-42ii with the GM1 over the 12-32, and I definitely liked the 45-150 when I had it. Great little OIS zooms with very good results.
