    I have a GH2 and the following lenses;

    7-14mm, 14-140mm, 100-300mm, 20mm, Panna-Leica D 25mm plus Voightlander 50mm f1.1 and 48yr old Leica 90mm Summicron

    I also have the Panasonic Leica M adapter

    I don't use the 20mm much since if I want AF I use the PL25 and if I want low light I use the 50mm. I never really bonded with the 14-140mm in the way I did with the 7-14 or the 100-300mm. (I bought all 3 zooms & GH2 together when I sold my nikon gear before christmas)

    I enjoy using manual focus lenses on the GH2 and hanker after buying a s/h Leica body someday so I was thinking, would it make sense to buy a wide M lens?

    Perhaps a Zeiss 21/25mm? If I sold the 14-140 & the 20mm I would be in the ball park price range I believe (I try to balance purchases and sales)

    I would have the 14-140 range covered by primes and the extreme ends of the other two zooms

    Would a Zeiss 21 or 25mm Biogon be a good idea and would I notice IQ wise, or would it just be an expensive new toy? (I would never get rid of the PL25)

    Should I wait for the new m43 Zeiss lenses?
