Re: 12-35mm f/2.8: What's the verdict?

I have had this lens some time now. It has become the lens I leave on the camera all the time.

I find it is a very sharp and well made lens. In my view it justifies its price, especially by comparison with the other Panasonic standard zooms available, all of which I have owned.

The 14-45 was a bit better than the 14-42 but this lens is better by far than either. I have sold my 12mm f2 simply because it performed no better than the zoom. I will probably sell my 25 f1.4 too. Though it is sharper in principle,I haven't bothered with it since buying the zoom.

As a caveat, I am not a pixel peeper or an OCD over these things. I am simply a professional photographer of 40 years standing and follow my own nose and experience in all things photographic.
