I'm going on a trip to Rome and London and if I take my GH3 with 12-35 zoom, should I buy a UWA? And, if I should get one, which one? The Oly is smaller and lighter, and the Panny is slightly faster.... would appreciate some feedback and recommendations.

John,

I've already said its a good idea  . The choice is a tough one, the 7-14 is undoubtedly the better lens but it is plagued by flare in sunlight and more expensive. I also don't think you need much more than 9mm in an urban environment. The fact you could fit a circular polariser to the 9-18 is a big plus, as is the fact its collapsible.

If buying for this trip, get the 9-18, but if buying for longer term, get the 7-14. This is one of my favourites with the 7-14 (with the GH3):
