Love the Camera the Kit Lens is Meh...
I have had this Kit for a couple weeks now and have been able to try it in several different situations and have been absolutely impressed. Compared to the pro-sumer compact I've been using it excels in every way. The kit I bought actually came with the 14-42mm & the 45-150mm zoom lens. The 14-42 lens has a very sticky/jumpy zoom action that is consistent with other reviews I've read on this...

I have had this Kit for a couple weeks now and have been able to try it in several different situations and have been absolutely impressed. Compared to the pro-sumer compact I've been using it excels in every way. The kit I bought actually came with the 14-42mm & the 45-150mm zoom lens. The 14-42 lens has a very sticky/jumpy zoom action that is consistent with other reviews I've read on this product. This makes it pretty useless for video but the optics and still images are pretty good for a kit lens. that being said it will be useful until I acquire some faster primes in that range. I love the size and weight of this system it easy to keep your gear with you all the time with the right bag. If your looking for a bargain to make the move to micro 4/3's this is it in my opinion.

Not so great
Nice physical features and gadgets but picturs quality is disappointing. I compared using the Pana 25mm f1.4 on the G5 and the Oly EPL-3. G5 pictures are blury and skin tones are not natural. I asked Adorama for a replacement thinking it was a bad unit but they refunded me instead. Perhaps thats better.

Solid choice in m4/3
I use this as a backup to my Nikon rig. I carry in my briefcase. Really nice interface. Viewfinder is really cool too. I find it better to have a built in viewfinder than attaching an external one... feels much more integrated into camera. I usually use v
