How is the zoom ring to turn, on your lens?
It's actually not stiff at all, it feels just right. I don't know if it's because this lens was used, or if it's just a better fit than some of them, I definitely noticed some reports of stiff zoom ring in reviews.How is the zoom ring to turn, on your lens?
I tried that lens a year ago, and the zoom ring was very STIFF to turn.
As best as I could figure, I think this was because the throw was only about 60 degrees, so it needed a fair bit of force to cam the optics out/in.
Because it was so stiff, it was also difficult to make fine adjustment in the focal length.
The GF7 is 3 grams lighter. Not sure how the weight of the 14-42 EZ compares with the 12-32. However mine has the monumentally heavy JJC self-opening lens cap on it, which must weigh several grams, at least ... .I'll have to compare the dimensions and weight of the new acquisition to my wife's 12-32mm on the GF7, just for laughs.
Thanks very much for the offer, Don, but I have lots of black ones. They live in the camera's original box.I bought a bag of hotshoe covers...want me to mail you a black one?
I have been waiting to go to a photo show to buy the 50-200 and hopefully get the converter for free.Bought a second-hand Panasonic 1.4x teleconverter to go with my Panasonic 50-200. It's in really good condition with the caps and bag, but no box (I knew that before buying) and was much cheaper than the new price. Optically it seems perfect to my eyes.

You have had better luck than me.
Note you said plastic. Agreed.You have had better luck than me.
ALL of the plastic JJC hoods that I have bought have needed "fiddling" to get them to fit properly. (mine: Olympus 40-150R, 75-300, 12-40/2.8. schools: Canon 18-135 (x5))
Most were tight, or so TIGHT that it would not turn to mount onto the lens.
Don't forget to set the text file as read only.Thanks very much for the offer, Don, but I have lots of black ones. They live in the camera's original box.
I, too, bought a bag of them. Red and pink ones! When you drop one, or put it somewhere for safekeeping, you can find the bloody thing again!!
Like my OTG cable that's here somewhere. I bought another one this morning ... this one will live attached to my SD card reader, in the pocket of my tablet case.
I also bought some micro USB to USB-C connectors, ditto.
Other buys this morning were 2x 128GB micro SD cards and 2x 32GB SD cards.
Today or tomorrow I will prepare the 128GB cards for our phones. Existing 2x 32GB microSD will be prepped as overflow cards for my E-M1 MkI and MkII. The two new 32GB SD cards will be used with my E-M1 MkII and the two existing 16GB cards I use in it will be used in my E-PM2.
Lots of stuffing about. All my cards are named, both on the card and with a couple of text files. I never play mix-n-match with cards between devices.
So every card will be physically labelled, then formatted using SDFormatter, then in the device it will be used in, then back into the card reader to be labelled and have text files copied to them. Quite a performance!
