    Just when I convinced myself I didn't need that lens

    You might not NEED it... lol.

    I sold my 12mm f/2.0 prime and my E-M5 and this fills the gap: it has lens stabilization for my Panny bodies and it's only a stop slower at 12mm. Win/win for my situation. YMMV.

    Nice colorful shots, and beautiful model!

    The 12-35/2.8 might not be the sharpest m4/3 lens out there, but it is certainly one of the most versatile. Mine stays on my E-M5 most of the time!

    Very nice shots. I'm bringing mine out today to handle focal lengths that I am unsure will be required in a fast-paced environment and have minimal room to bring extras along.

    Congrats, buddy. The 12-35 is one of m4/3's greatest optics. Great IQ (as you have instantly demonstrated), great OIS, excellent wide-angle starting point, constant aperture... what's not to love about it? Mine is rarely far from a body. I'm sure you will explore it heavily in the years to come. Enjoy.

    Hi John ... I disagree with you ..Its not the lens or your GX1 -- The little cute princess is so beautiful and even kit lens will be enough:wink: In this case the model is so pretty that I dont wanna know anything about the lens .

    I love the composition of the first one! It's an amazing photo that really tells a story (made all the more surrealistic by her age).

    (I have to say though, I really hope that pacifier got washed between shots 1 & 2 in the backyard!)

    But with regard to the "binky": Ummm... probably not, lol. But look at it this way: we're building her immune system...

    Seriously, my wife washes that thing off all the time, but sometimes Hannah has her own ideas about it...

    Great pics!

    I just picked up a 12-35mm off of Ebay, like new (literally pristine), for $850 shipped! I justified it by telling myself that I can sell my 14/2.5, 14-45mm and 45/2.8 to pay for it.

    I have my own 16 MO model of similar cuteness that I hope to test it on soon.

    I like the "Godzilla" feel of Number3.

    Beautiful color. Incredible sharpness. Every time I see P12-35 pictures I wonder why I don't own that lens.

    Ha ha! Only one I got of that too. It was like her first step before rushing past me and I had time for one shot. Lucky timing!
