    I'm buying the GH3. Having used APS-C for forever, I need some lens recommendations, primarily for travel, so it needs to be light and minimal.

    I'm thinking about:

    Ultrawide - but I need one that can take a variable ND filter. How can this be accomplished with m4/3?

    Superzoom - Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. Lumix G Vario HD

    Prime - Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Aspheric G- Series Pancake Lens (46mm)

    Any input?

    Take a look at the Panasonic 12-35mm F/2.8 Lumix G X.
    It complements the gh3 nicely.

    Olympus 9-18 will take filters, no problems.

    how much you wanna spend?
    panny 7-14 with the fotodiox wide angle kit is the highest quality solution. Should cost in total... alot. The screw on filter is massive. put the 2 145mm CPL's together and you got your vari ND. or order a custom one for a 145mm.
    the 9-18 seems alright. I generally prefer the 7-14. Check the Image threads to see what you may prefer.
