Mine just arrived and I'm impressed with how well-made it is. Very similar to the Panasonic 14/2.5 but just a bit more metal and solid. A similar performance characteristic as well - super sharp in the center, right from wide open, and very good into the corners just one stop down. A little different rendering than the zoom, which is a little more even across the frame wide open, but the 10 has a bit more "sparkle" or microcontrast.

We're spoiled by the 10-30 - Nikon puts a lot of effort into standard kit zooms and it shows. The 10/2.8 is nice, compact option, but it doesn't blow away the zoom. The VR is very handy. Quite glad to have both - especially as the 10mm makes for a really compact option. Glad to have both!
