the f 2.5 is not a aps-c f2.8 eqivalent at all.. Composition wise 12 mm is interestin,g f2.8 a bit for shutter speed but with relation to dof its utterly uninteresting.

this would have been a interesting lense if it was f1.8 or f 2.0 OR f 3 to 4 and very cheap.

this combo is not very interesting, to much of a compromise. It does not grt a grip on the big limitation of m43, dof control.

also if price rumors ate correct its a joke. Panasonic please look at Oly. 45 mm 1.8, 12 mm f 2.0, maybe a 75 mm 1.8, thats how to do it.


Translation: "I don't understand how to use this lens, because I think the value of a lens is primarily DoF. Factors such as handling, overall performance and durability are secondary. So is any consideration that other people find this type of lens to be ideal for their type of photography and personal way of working. Therefore, I will assume my personal preference is applicable as a standard for everyone, and thus critique the lens in a totally negative way.

You could have just said you don't see a need, personally, for this lens.

Some people operate cameras. Others use them to create images. There is a difference.
