The worrying thing is that the 10-25mm would balance well at the lens end of a G9, GH5, and MX1 compared to any other m43 cameras. So even Olympus MX1 owners could be tempted to give this lens a try.

As I thought a very video centric lens, so it ain’t coming my way. I’ll just have to struggle on with my 8-18mm rather than the big new lump with a stepless aperture ring!

I'm not interested either. I would be interested in a small 10-17 or similar.

I don't have many 20mm shots with my Nikon gear either, but I'd really like to find out if it's because I've typically used a 24-whatever zoom for the last 20 years. Carrying a small 20mm in my picket didn't add many pics.

I like the 12-60 PL but wonder if I should add a small 10mm fixed lens -- if I can find one...

10-17 small zoom would be a definite buy...

It's one of these lenses where you have to find justifications not to try it out for yourself, even if you aren't thinking of buying it. The 100-400mm is the only other Panasonic lens with the same curiosity factor that I can think of off hand.

If I get back into video seriously as I plan this year this lens a a Gh6 just might be my goto combination. For a trip I have planned next year this and the G9/100-400 with the 60mm in my pocket just might be the dream "serious travel kit" for me.

The 35-100mm f2.8 would slot in there nicely I reckon.

It's also a holy grail for anyone who shoots event or documentary work in stills. Combine that with a 42.5 or a 56 or a 75 and you have a pretty fabulous combo. For me, it eliminates having to carry three primes. I can leave the 7.5, 15/16 and 25/30 lenses home. I can run with two bodies instead of four, one for each prime. I know, I'm not normal.
