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

Only on the m43 forum does everyone hike at night.

I hike during the day, I've never needed f/2.8 lenses in order to take sharp pictures.

All I do is hike at night and that's why I'm getting a GH3 with the 12-35mm f/2.8 kit lens

TBH, few f2.8 lenses are at their sharpest at 2.8!

It's more about being able to get decent shutter speeds indoors during the day without resorting to intrusive flash and/or about limiting DOF for me.

Of course it also facilitates available light images in places like night markets etc when on the road.

I've never really understood why anyone would buy anything slower than 2.8.
