I have been evaluating performance of the Panasonic Lumix GX Vario 35-100mm f/2.8 Lens for the last few days. Overall, I am happy with its performance and wrote a brief review that includes information on MTF50, vignetting, bokeh quality, as well as sample photos.

I hope the information will be useful to those considering whether or not to purchase the lens.

Thanks William, I spent Saturday at a Renaissance Fair with that lens mounted on the E-M5, shooting primarily at 2.8. My experiences with it coincide with your results - it's a solidly built lens, and candid portraits of the players have a shallow enough DOF for decent subject isolation but enough depth to easily keep both eyes in focus (most of the time). I had very few missed shot due to focus errors.
