Are there detractors for the Oly 12/2?

There are a lot of complaints about the AF noise and speed of the Panasonic 20/1.7.

Hi Richarddd,

The Oly 12 f2 is a great lens.

Personally, I've found it a bit pricey (at 500), where the 12-35 X can be purchased for 700...

Yes, I understand IQ is much better on the 12 f2 (prime > zoom nearly every time), and the aperture is a stop faster (which may or may not make a difference in real life.)

So it depends on what your priorities are!

For me, I'd stick with 12-35 X + something faster / wider than 12 f2 (when it hits the market)... but that suits me, and you may have completely different requirements.
