    Anybody use 12-35 on Gx1? How does it handle? OK or unbalanced? Does it suffer from shutter shock ?
    Any pictures of the combo? :)

    Don't know about shutter shock as I haven't seen any yet, but I have a 14-140mm Panny on my GX1 and handling is fine for me. So, I think the 12-35mm would be just fine. But handling is always subjective.

    I use it quite often. A bit front heavy, but still comfortable. The grip on GX1 helps a lot. Sorry, I don't have pictures of the combo to share....

    No problems with the 12-35 except a little vignetting in certain circumstances. The 35-100 is superb.

    I’ve never noticed any shutter shock, but have never tested for it either. I purchased my first GX1 and 12-35 at the same time one year ago and use them both frequently.

    Only pic I have is this poor one, but it does show the 12-35 on a GX1 (w/LVF2) in its collapsed position next to a Canon 5D2 with comparable 24-70 f/2.8 also in the collapsed position.

    Agreed, a little vignetting sometimes, not a problem for me. Love using this combo over my previous Canon FF f/2.8 setup.
