Are you refering to the user review at the bottom of the page?When you reset the lens as described in the review, are you resetting ALL your settings in the camera?
I have this new kit lens, which comes with the E-PL2 I got recently.
I like the lens a lot. Although it is a bit longer, it is smaller in diameter and is lighter. Redesigned to internally focus, it is quieter and faster. Also, you can mount polarizers effectively, which is not the case with the MK-I, or any Canon/Nikon kit lens for that matter, where you actually rotate the front element to focus. The improvement in speed is what I like the most about this lens. Taking photos of an active 3 year old with this, my keepers rate is much higher than before. When taking videos, you don't hear grinding noise when focusing.
I didn't notice any sharpness issue that was reported by that one user on SLRgear. The lens was sharp out of the box. See 100% crop below:

This is just a quick 'review' I made during lunch at work, sorry I don't have more interesting subject. I just shot whatever was on my desk.
