I call shenanigans. No way that is correct. I'm sure it will be more like f3.5-5.6.

There have to be some compromises somewhere: price, IQ, size, speed. You can't expect to have them all. Given the GM1 target market, you can't expect this to be a $1500+ lens. Given Panasonic's overall reputation for good lenses (including, notably, the matching 12-32) you can't expect them to compromise meaningfully on IQ. The size is dictated by the form factor and target market. Which leaves speed--this is where they will have to compromise.
