    Just thought some of you would find this interesting. After DPreview and other sites noted that this lens had sharpness issues at certain shutter speeds, I expected Photozone to mention this also. However they basically say it's a mediocre lens in a diminutive package, and probably worth it for its unique convenience. I know that many of you have written off the lens due to bad press and a high price, but it does seem as if there are good copies out there. It also doesn't really cost that much now when bought as a kit. Is it time to re-evaluate the worth of this lens?

    I've heard rumors that the double image problem only manifests on certain bodies, as well. It does look like Photozone tested on the GX1, same as everybody else, though.
