Are the constant aperture Panasonic lenses worth it (and are you wating for Olympus?)

So it is 90 percent certain that the Olympus will be 12-40? If so, that is a huge advantage for me, since 40, by being a 35mm equivilent of 80 is just about ok for faces, whereas 70mm on the Panasonic is inadequate.

I agree the zooms aren't bad value when you consider the cost of primes - but to me, thats more an indicator of how expensive the primes are rather than how cheap the zoom is (though I appreciate that is an academic distinction.

But is crazy how, say, Nikon and Canon have both 35mm and 50mm dslr options which are both great and cheap.

My personal complication is that I will continue to use a GH2 alongside by Oly for video - but only really for indoor shooting where the Oly gives me flickers in Europe - and therefore most likely using a tripod so stabilisation is less of an issue.
