I'm kinda surprised by the difference again. The left edge of the frame is almost exactly in the same spot but the Lumix gains over an inch, maybe 2" on the right edge. This might not be much of a difference at this distance but if you were taking a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge or some mountain it could mean the difference between capturing the whole feature or not. Maybe it's not of much value to think of it like this but when photographing the stars that 1.5 inch difference would equate to light-years.

Interesting and curious at the same time -- Looking at Greg's kitchen samples the biggest surprise seems to be that the Panny zoom only gains extra view to the right and to the top and not evenly overall. Would have thought that wider is wider all around and not biased to one edge...
Now any bets on the area of coverage of the M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II, M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R, M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ, M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ and finally the M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO at oh lets say 17mm...
