    about the two new Panasonic X lenses. Especially the pancake zoom. I'm loving the zoom on the E-PL2, but I wish it were a tad shorter for better fit in my cargo shorts. The new tele zoom also looks nice too, something a little longer than the 40-150 that Olympus has.

    Here are a few preliminary hands on from 43rumors website:

    I want the X 14-42 more than any other lens right now, though I'm on the fence because of price and because of curiosity about how well it will actually work on Oly bodies. The PM1 plus 14 slides into my pocket now, and having a zoom lens at about that size would be amaaaazing. Oh, and I don't have the Panny 20mm so I'm wondering whether I want the fast prime or the zoom.

    I have to admit I wasn't that enthusiastic about a power zoom lens but after seeing that shot of the new 14-42mm X next to the 20mm, I'm pretty revved up. Promit, I'm sure there'll be a firmware update soon that'll ensure the X lenses work on Oly bodies.
