I have the GX7, and yes I know it depends on what you like to shoot ... but I'd like to hear from people who own one or both...

which one do you prefer and why?

(I'm leaning towards the 35-100 as the more practical option, but I love primes, so?!)

Cheers!

My only lens for quite awhile was the 14-140 which is very convenient for a walk around lens. I was and still am very happy with the results from this lens. However, I recently purchased the 75mm for $849 after much debate.

It is probably the best money I have spent in quite awhile, hard to explain, I don't know if it's the micro contrast, bokeh, sharpness or whatever but I can always spot a difference in photo's take with this lens, it is truly magic.
