    Anyone use these lenses? Given my current set of lens I now leaning one of these combinations rather than the 12-35mm. I would assume that the PZ's are better in their range than the 14-140 II? I am specifically looking for video as I have stills pretty well covered.

    45-175 PZ > 14-140 II > 14-42 PZ
    The 14-140 and the 14-42 are both sharp at 14, but the 14-42 is much softer at 42.
    The 45-175 might be a little softer at 45 than the 14-140, but is way sharper at 175 than the 14-140 is at 140.
    They all have excellent contrast and OoF characteristics. The 45-175 has especially nice bokeh at the long end.

    I'm thinking about the same thing but I would hate to give up the 45-175pz. I love this lens, I think it's vastly underrated. Never tried the little 14-42 though.

    For video there is still a lot of people reporting jitter with the 14-140 II OIS
