Panasonic 15mm f/1.7 or the 7-14mm f/4 for the GM-1?
3 weeks ago

OK I know I know, it's not an apples and apples comparison, but I can't afford to buy both.

On the one hand, I really like the 15mm as it will perfectly complement the body of my GM-1. It's small enough, and yet highly versatile with f/1.7, which will replace my kit 12-32mm lens. That said I've got a superb Voigtlander 17.5mm f/0.95 (manual) lens.

On the other hand, I haven't got an ultra wide angle lens (I've got super-zoom lenses) for my GM-1 and the 7-14mm is a superb lens that gives me a field of view I don't currently have.

So my dilemma (other than a tight budget) is if I got the 15mm lens, I'm still out of the ultra wide angle view, but if I got the 7-14mm, it's a HUGE lens (although that doesn't perturb me, after all, the Voigtlander 17.5mm - which pretty much stays on my GM-1 - is big and almost double the weight of the 7-14mm).

What's your advice, oh wise ones?
