    I would hold judgement on that. While I don't think Panasonic would drop too much quality, I want to see production samples. And the price tag, heh.

    I have mixed feelings about this being an "X" lens when that is supposed to be their "L" line. Power zoom and a slow multi-variable aperature is not what I'm looking for in a pro lens.

    I can also use "Egads!" "Leaping Lizards!" or "Great Scott!" upon request... :)
  8. "Golly gosh" would also have been an acceptable alternative.

    Did my time machine send me back to the 1950's again?

    I was going to say that I thought the word was 'croy-key!' However, TV tells me that 'beer' is pronounced 'fosters' down there, so I'm not sure what to think.

    Good point! I have heard that Fosters is Australia's best beer, just like Bud Light here in the states. [/digging bomb shelter]
