Not that one I mean the tiny one that they are about to release, the 12-32 pancakes sibling.The 35-100/2.8 is a fantastic lens! I have used mine for several months. It is compact, handles well and well made. You can view some of my photos taken with the 35-100 here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/biomed3/sets/72157646639370031/
The op is refering to the new pany 35-100/f4-5.6 announced with the new GM5. He clarifies this in his second post. People just keeps bringing up the f2.8 because they don't read read all the posts.I didn't realize you weren't referring to the 35-100/2.8 zoom. Maybe editing the thread title would clarify this.
I normally wait for the price to drop on these things, but it just seems so ideal, I ended up getting a 12-32 at pretty soon after there were ones available. These lenses and the pancakes fit right into what I feel is the ethos of µ43 (others will differ in opinion) of being a small format with good quality output.I have the 35-100/2.8 and love it (I've read the entire post I swear!), but I'm actually interested in the new 35-100/4-5.6 as well. Currently my backup camera (that my wife uses mainly) is an EM5 and 12-32 and the 35-100/4-5.6 would go perfectly with that I think.
I'll probably pick one up when the street price drops/I can get a used one for cheap.
Guilty as charged. However, the topic title was misleading and a quick scan of the thread showed a preponderance of mentions of the 35-100 f2.8 lens. This 35-100/f4-5.6 was totally unknown to me. Is it actually in use now? Has any user posted images taken with it? Anyway, I don't think I would interested in a kit lens like that since I already have the perfectly good PL35-100 f2.8The op is refering to the new pany 35-100/f4-5.6 announced with the new GM5.
