This lens has the same aperture and therefore makes the same images as a 24-70 F5.6 on a full frame camera.
So what is revolutionary or expensive about it?
Please make comparison images and post them.

Best regards,

Peter

No, the aperture is f/2.8, it produces the same depth of field as f/5.6 on a 35mm "full frame" imaging area. The aperture is most assuredly f/2.8 and allows you to expose as such.

The lens isn't intended to be "revolutionary", merely to add yet another lens to Panasonic's ever increasing line-up for micro four thirds, occupying a higher end spot because it offers a constant aperture over a useful zoom range, much like Canon and Nikon have in their lens line-up for their respective SLR ranges.
