Panasonic Announces Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II ASPH Mega OIS

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II

So, as part of the CP+ show this coming week, Panasonic has announced a new kit lens, the Vario G 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II. It features a few new upgrades, like a return to the metal mount (unless that is silver coloured plastic peeking out at the back there), a much smaller size compared to the previous two versions of the kit lens. Oh, and don’t forget the two aspherical elements in there. Panasonic wants you to know that.

Fun anecdote: I remember holding the first 14-45 lens just a few years ago when the Panasonic G1 first came out. I found it irresistibly cute back then. Funny how it seems so big now.
