    Just wanted to give some props to the versatility of the GX7.

    Love the 12-35 lens, and besides the lightning fast AF, sharpness, sweet 12mm short end, and high quality build etc, this lens feels absolutely perfect on my GX7 body. While the grip allows for secure one handed shooting with the P20mm as a compact RF setup, the 12-35 turns it into a completely different animal. More performance based shooting two handed. The barrels fit my hands perfectly. I can now rotate to zoom and focus rather than pinch the barrel as I do with smaller MFT lenses (oly kit etc). Things feel quicker with way more control. Also liking the OIS switch.

    Only complaint is the purplish color in light and no function button like the Oly 12-40. Both trivial. Here's a look:

    As a fellow owner the 12-35mm, I would of loved it to look similar to the PL42.5mm but that's just nitpicking.

    excellent lens and I always carry it with me as it is light and small for a f2.8 constant zoom
