I have a friend coming from Japan in about a month. I could ask him to bring me a 12-35mm. It's running about $925 in US dollars with the current exchange rate. My husband owes me ... he just spent nearly $2000 on HIS hobby, without telling me first ... should I get it? I have a GH2 and an EPL-2. My current native lens lineup is: 14-140mm 20mm 25mm f/1.4 Oly 45mm f/1.8 100-300mm Lately I've been keeping the 25mm on most of the time, but I use the 45mm if I'm shooting portraits, and I use the 14-140mm for day trips when I'm traveling light. Why do I need the 12-35mm? How would it augment my collection? I'm tempted to dump the 20mm, but I haven't, because, well ... pancake! But I almost never use it.
