    How does the power zoom lens work? I can see there is a lever on the lens barrel but is it a slider or a rocker type? Is it a fixed speed or is it pressure sensitive. Has anybody used it in video mode? It also appears that the 14-42mm does not have a focus ring - is that correct?

    It's pressure sensitive, and on the more-modern bodies, you can adjust the "fast" and "slow" speeds.

    It has a focus "lever", like the one for the power zoom. Don't ask me how that works, though! :eek: ~tc~?

    I don't have any of these lenses, just going off what I have read. I imagine the focus is single speed.
