I have been using my 20mm pancake lens for 3 years now and have been quite happy with it.
Is there any point in "upgrading" to a 12-35mm lens or is it a waste of money? I do like the wider angle shot sometimes for a scenery/landscape shot.

12-32mm is kit lens
12-35mm is pro lens with f2.8 aperture

of course 12-35 is better but the size and weight much bigger than 12-32mm, price also 3 to 4 times difference.

you can check my link on first post, some does include lens review.

interesting yo…price duno…

This 12-100 is, I suspect, the sharpest and most contrasty zoom lens Olympus have brought out to date. My impression just from working with the files is that its sharpness and resolving power has to be up there with the best Olympus’s best primes.

I really wish Olympus will have replacement for legendary 12-60 but we're getting 12-100 instead, but still the price puke.gif 12-40 really not far enough for event coverage.

iso 64 isn't native iso. it is iso LOW. native still start from 200.

the new PanaLeica trio indeed a surprise in this announcement. now m4/3 is getting stronger with all these lenses.

Saw the em1 ii... And I am thinking of selling my em1 just for the video upgrade.

The to camera Is really a Leica clone. Wonder who manufactured the lens for them.

Dont underestimate china camera though. If they put their mind to it, they can manufactured good camera at really affordable price. Just check out their smartphones. And they can make good optics like mitakon.

Though, i would pass the Leica clone for now cause 1st gen tend to suck. Despite calling it the cheap Leica clone, the spec is rather meh and you find almost similar pricing and spec of m43 on older olympic or panasonic model.
