I only have the 14-140, which is a great lens, but most of the video I take is at fairly close distances. I would also love to have that much fast speed.

The 12-35 is on my wish list, but the price, especially since I already have the 14,20,25 and 45 is a bit hard to justify.

Why not sell all the lenses to defray the cost of the 12-35. So you have:

14 2.5

20 1.7

25 1.4

45 1.8 or 2.8, not sure what manufacture.

I think you should get at least $500 for all the prime lenses so the 12-35 is about half of what it is now.

Actually I take that back. Sell the 14-140 and keep the 45 mm lens.

In essence you have a 12 2.8, 14 2.8, 20 2.8, 25 2.8 and 35 2.8 in one lens.

If you really need something past 45 mm get the Panasonic 45-200, its not a bad lens at $230.

That or sell the 45 mm and keep the 25 1.4 for low light no flash stuff and still get that 45-200 because you'll duplicate that etc.
