I think Panny is jumping the shark. Trying to make everything smaller and smaller for some reason, loosing site of details.. No manual zoom, no Filter - I wonder about the lens cap, is it automatic.
I just heard about the next 2 lenses (fast), 12-35 & 35-100 in the $2000 range.. Come on.. It seems they are marketing to the extreme ends of the spectrum, nothing in between. Large aperture lenses are great but correct me if im wrong, 2x crop factor kind of kills the depth of field / bokeh..
Just my 2 cents, I may be interested in the 14-42 compact for my GF2, but the thought of no manual zoom no filters turns me off..
Motorized zoom = more things to break.
