UPDATE: Google translation tool made a mess because the questions were made in nrowegian and the answers are written in swedish (what the heck?). Thanks to all readers sending me the correct info!

We are receiving more and more bits about the upcoming Panasonic 12-35mm and 35-100mm X lenses. We know they will have a constant aperture (f/2.8 or faster), we know the lenses are weather sealed. The info get’s a backup by Mac Berggen, a Norwegian Panasonic product specialist He revealed at akam.no:
1)The new lenses will definitely be the best thing we ever did“…”the best performance of all Pany lenses”
2)The aperture will be great“.
3)The price will be high“. UPDATE: The price will be lower than the 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms from the competition. Note: Canon (Click here to check that price on eBay) and Nikon (Click here to check that price on eBay). He susggests the price could be around 10.000 Norwegian Krone which is 1.300 Euro ($1700).
