there's another lightening deal starting at 12:30 pm pst with basically the same thing (GF3 with LUMIX G X Vario PZ 14-42mm/F3.5-5.6 Lens) which is labelled GF3XT while the current one is GF3XK. no lightening deal price yet.
anyone know the difference between the two? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...1430424162
Some initial reports said that it had a double image problem at some focal lengths. Many more reports said it didn't. Those initial bad reports have died down since and many have decided it really wasn't a problem to begin with.
I had the lens and thought it was a problem. How have they still not FW updated it yet?
Got one for the lens! This is a great compact lens, collapsed it is the same size as my 20mm pancake! It won't replace my best lenses but gives me a lot more freedom for my GFX and by the reviews is a good video lens in it's own right. That is a lot of camera that will fit in my pocket! The cheapest I could find online for the lens alone was ~$320. Selling the body on ebay should net around $100 back. Repped.
The problem with the PZ is noticeable in some situation, but one has to take this lens for what it is, a compromise between size and PQ. Is the picture quality on par with the 14-42 or 14-45? No, it's not. But this is a pancake sized lens that is excellent for making a very portable camera. Use it for what it is.
where to find the link for lighting deals? NVM found it. Only the brown is active now. All good.
For people who are concern about the sharpness of the lens. If they search the reviews closely, most of the complains are from the earlier batch around Feb of 12. Later reviews from people who bought are most good reviews.
