What about the older Lumix kit zooms?
« on: April 04, 2013, 06:28:47 pm »
<div id="linkdxomark">This a comment for <a href="http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Database/Panasonic/Panasonic-LUMIX-G-VARIO-14-42mm-F35-56-II-ASPH-MEGA-OIS">this page on the website</a></div>This review is helpful but would be even better if it included a comparison with the older 14-45mm and 14-42mm manual zoom lenses previously supplied with kits.

I have both of these, my GX1 came with the manual 14-42mm but I've since bought the 14-45mm which is much sharper. dpreview reviewed both these lenses some years ago and came to the same conclusion, so it would be good to know how these older lenses compare in DxOMark tests.

I completely agree. The 14-42mm was a noticeable downgrade from the 14-45mm.
If you've got pants on, you're doing alright.

Hello!

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

The "older" lenses are not in the road map. 

We indeed have too many lenses are in the scope for now.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
