    I'm interested in getting a GM1, but I would just use it with the 14mm and 45mm. I'm really trying to justify the price, and if the resale of the 12-32 is good, I'd definitely make the purchase. I see it's listed as a preorder at B&H for $348, but does anyone have experience with splitting it from the GM1 and selling it here or elsewhere? What's the actual market value?

    I'm guessing it's a bit too soon to say. You could try looking for completed sales on ebay.

    I'm gonna bump this because I'm wondering the same thing.

    The 12-32 is cute and I kind of want to keep it just so I have a "complete kit" (I guess its a weird obsessive thing of mine).

    But I'm not sure I'd use it very much. The 12mm is nice, but the rest of the range I dont care for.

    $300-325 seems to be the going rate. I paid $315 for one a month ago.
    That price will probably drop as more of them become available.
    I've been very happy with lens.

    Some guy been trying to sell one on OZ ebay for weeks and weeks now, $375 hasnt got a nibble. Personally I think $300.00 is about right here for it, being so small it really wont look so good on even a GX7 let alone an slr style body. Would be a nice lens for a GF2/3 or GX1 though!

    eBay says $275-$300 for auctions of the 12-32 (more for the 'new' in box ones). Subtracting eBay fees, that's a net of $240-260.
