Panasonic 12-35 vs 14-45
May 23, 2012

Based on Ephotozine's tests the old Panasonic 14-45mm ( $272 on Amazon ) offers significantly higher resolution than the the new 12-35mm ( $1299 on Amazon ) and weighs about 1/3 less. It seems like a very large premium to pay for an extra f stop, 2mm more on the wide end ( albeit 10mm less on the long end ) and power OIS. What am I missing here?
