P12-35/2.8 & P12-60/3.5 vignetting

In spite of the fact a 24 has been one of my principal fl's
for 40+ years, its too soon to pick up a wide prime. The
7-14 is not a solution. I tend to shoot wide and close,
single object, usually with depth, is the main focus.
Perspective distortion below 12mm fl is difficult for me
to handle well.
Clearly the 12-35 and 12-60 are the wrong lenses for you.

You would prolly looooove my 10-22/3.5-4.5. It has none
of the problems that plague you. It's a very respected EF-s
ultrawide zoom. Used for m4/3 its relatively problem-free
outer regions are outside the format and you're left with a
20-44 [=FF] FoV that is better than ANY native m4/3 WA
zoom. Your beloved 24mm [=FF] FoV is in its sweet spot.

When on sale the 10-22 is about $400. An adapter is about
$150. You may hafta pluck off the rubber ring on the rear
element, depending on which adapter you get. You will be
impressed by this lens, end to end, for m4/3 !

I also use the 10-18/4.5-5.6 which is about 1/2 the size and
weight of the 10-22, and 1/2 the price. It's physique is more
attuned to m4/3, especially the smaller bodies. I'm unable to
part with either of them in favor of the other. No problem ...
cuz neither one represents much money tied up.
