    The Bean, Chicago.
    Sorry, not with the E-P1 but with the GH-1.



    Most photographs don't emphasise its role of seagull perch and toilet.
    I haven't seen a single picture showing the seagull poop on postcards

    Yes, they are all Micro Four Thirds compliant. The 45-200 has in-lens stabilisation, so you may find that the E-P1's sensor shift stabiliser will override the lens stabilisation.

    I agree they're good lenses.
    My concern is not so much the speed of AF but the accuracy.

    That's interesting, it should be the other way around

    The E-P1 focuses the Panasonic lenses slower, but they are generally faster then their Zuiko equivalents. And the G1 focuses the Zuikos faster, too, in my experience, but not as fast as a G1. The GH-1 should be the same as the GH-1.

    Not so sure about reports that the Panasonic 14-45 is superior to the Zuiko 14-42. In general shooting I don't see any major differences. Both are pretty good for kit lenses.

    The E-P1 works better with the Panasonic 14-45 and 45-200 than the Olympus 14-42 and 17mm in terms of focus speed and image quality. With the 14-45mm the IQ will blow your socks off. Already on the Leica forums they are thinking the Pana 14-45 is at least not left behind by a 35mm Leica lens when used on the E-P1. The Panasonic lenses shouldn't be thought of as conventional rubbish 'kit' lenses, they are far better, the speed alone making them 'kit'.

    Nice shots I wonder what they would look like if you adjusted the contract and turned them into silhouettes

    started a topic E-P1 and Panasonic 45-200

    E-P1 and Panasonic 45-200

    Stopped on the way home to get a few samples.

    Exchanged the lens because the first one wouldn't focus well, sticky when adjusting the focus ring, and jerky in operation, not smooth movement as I turned the ring. Second lens works much better.

    Wide angle with the kit 14-42 for comparison.
