    Hi, i'm new here

    i'd like to know about focusing speed of PL 14-50/f2.8-3.5 on E-P2? i know that 14-54 mk II already has high speed imager-AF so it has faster focusing speed on E-P2.

    i have tried 14-54 mk I on my E-P2 and the focusing speed is slow...

    does PL 14-50 have same focusing speed like 14-54 mk I ?

    i'm falling in love with this lens (14-50) since i tried this lens on my E510, and my friend want to sell this lens to me, but i'm concern about the focusing speed on E-P2.

    thanks
    (sorry about my bad english)

    I have the 14-50 and if you switch to centre spot focusing and make sure you pick something with good contrast to focus on its OK. No speed merchant certainly but unless you're planning to shoot sports or fast action it does work, reasonably well.

    Will your friend not let you try it out?

    Image quality on the E-P2 is awesome, at all focal lengths at all apertures.

    Would you say that the image quality is better than the stock 14-45mm Panasonic kit zoom (at same aperture speeds)? Contrast, resolution, etc?

    i tried 14-50 on EP2, focusing speed little bit faster than 14-54 mk I.
    to bad, i cannot take that lens, because the condition of my friends lens is not good anymore.
    the zooming function is not good, its hard to reach 50mm zoom

    so, i canceled it
    hiks
