Are the constant aperture Panasonic lenses worth it (and are you wating for Olympus?)

If you want to be a wedding photographer, maybe you are better off investing in a Canon 6D.

But if you already own an E-M5 or something like that, it's cheaper to just buy the Panasonic 35-100 instead of buying a whole new system.

Why does one need to be a wedding photographer to possibly enjoy and benefit from a fast zoom lens?

a wedding photographer/videographer you can just change lenses.


Please.  As if wedding photographers are the only people in the world who don't have time to change lenses.  And even if sufficient time is available, there are some who simply don't wish to change lenses frequently, or, due to using Panasonic bodies, would benefit from image stabilization.

And as for fast vs. slow zooms, the slow zooms don't cut it for most indoor shots, even with flash.  If I had the 12-35 f2.8, I'd often use it indoors with the FL-600R.

Najinsky, I'm right there with you.
