    The new 12-35mm lenses from Panasonic is making me very excited.
    Currently, i have the 9-18mm, 12mm and the 20mm and a 45mm lenses. My preferred focal length for usage is actually the 17mm, but i didn't get that since it is too near the 20mm in terms of focal length.
    I am seriously considering trading away the 12mm and 20mm to fund the 12-35mm. Any advises on this?

    Convenience of having 1 fast zoom that is mounted on 95% of the time.
    Able to focus from 12mm, 17mm, 25mm and 35mm, which i think i will use
    The 20mm is abit slow in AF, hopefully the new lenses will address this

    Losing a pancake 20mm
    Losing couple of F-stop on from those primes
    Rather expensive

    Honestly, I think you should hold off until we see results from the 12-35mm, though I am rather sure it will be a outstanding lens, but you never know, it would suck to get rid of your lenses and to find out the 12-35mm isn't what it's cracked out to be.

    and with that, don't sell any lenses, rob a bank if you have to.

    How the hell are you going to hold up a bank with a camera?

    I suggest using a gun. It's much more effective, and you'll be able to get the lens you want.
