The nl range zoom has been changed a few times. The latest incarnation
collapsible feature like Oly's--not much bigger than the pancake prime.
It seems to be about 3X the price of the previous 14-42, but haven't
seen a comparative review.
It still has IS despite the size. Perhaps a bit more belt-able than
NEX due to the reduced depth---AG thinks the
5N still is beltable.
Hah, recently couldn't resist a very good price for the CV 90/3.5 APO
in OM mount. I had an image or two to post but they were beset by CSS
(crappy scan syndrome). It is better close up, I think than the Z. 85
(well it is designed for focus close) but I don't think the bokeh is
as the Viv S1 90/2.5 macro though the latter is MUCH bigger/heavier for
travel. I still like the Z. 85/2 better for people shots except with
a busy background at 10 ft or so where the CV has an edge.
So Big Foot is happy to be united with its small sibling and longer
brother as well. The CV color Heliar 75/2.5 is available in OM mount
but it is really a double gausse and I kept my snipe guns off, but was
tempted. There is a true Heliar design 75/1.8 out but doesn't come
and needs to be stopped down a bit to sharpen the corners and has some
CA I wasn't fond of, but is a pretty nice lens overall.
