Hi all, first post here, what a wonderful forum! Basically, I will be going on a trip in the beginning of September, but stuck in a conundrum with lens choice. 1. Originally wanted to get the Panasonic 12-35mm as "walk-around" on top on my current lens list. But it's not available until September, no go. 2. Compromising for the Olympus 12mm is also not an option, out of stock here indefinitely in Canada. (besides, who wants the Silver one when the Black one come out soon? :smile 3. Now I'm down to the Oly 14-150mm and Panny 14-140mm. Olympus is on sale for "only" about ~USD$465 at ** Limited Time Offer **M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm f4-5.6(Micro Four Thirds Mount) Also perfect for the E-M5 with its built-in IBIS. 4. But seeing that I will be getting the GH3 when it comes out, and from what I gather, the Panny 14-140mm seems to be better built and sharper, so is it the better lens to buy? But unfortunately, the cheapest in Canada for this lens is ~USD$835, is this still a good buy? 5. So do I go for the "cheap" Olympus lens or the Panny which is almost double the price with the current situation in Canada? I could always order from B&H for $619 Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 H-VS014140 B&H but it only has US warranty only, unlike Olympus. 6. Is still a different option that I miss? Maybe the Olympus 7-14mm? But I hear a "weather-sealed OIS" version might be coming out, so it's better to wait? Feedback is appreciated.
