Dpreview (Click here) posted the 35-100mm X lens hands-on along some image samples. They write: “our first impressions of the Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 OIS are that it’s an excellent little lens – well made, fast-focusing, and optically impressive. A familiar question mark hangs over Panasonic’s pricing, though; the $1500 / £1000 tag is far from insignificant.”
Indeed the high price may be the the only real big downside of this lens. Anyway, we can still hope that Panasonic will make some nice discount like they are doing now on the 12-35mm X sister lens (-$200 here at Amazon). That would make it much easier to sell this lens!
