Re: "Best" depends on what it's for.

I just ordered a GX7 with the 20/1,7 and I'm thinking of buying one or two zooms as well.

Been thinking of the very fine 12-35/2,8 and 35-100/2,8 but as we all know those are not very cheap plus they might become too heavy and clumsy to bring along both. Second option in mind is to get only the 14-140 as a compact compliment to my 20/1,7 which will save me some money and weight but the question is if I will go mad with the performance of the 14-140..?

Are there any other good options I have foreseen?

As everybody I like fast but small/light lenses... I'm now looking for the optimal solution for me when it comes to quality vs small/light. I'm trading my D300 with primes and Sony S110 into the GX7 because I believe it will fit my requirements better...

Happy for any input


You're looking for cheap, light and fast. Those three features are tradeoffs against each other.

What type of shooting do you want to do?

Of course I'm looking for cheap, light and fast and also versatile (which I forgot to mention) but I'm well aware of the contradictions in all these properties and that the perfect lens doesn't exist and probably never will

I like street photographing and more artsy stuff as well as landscape/nature and vacation/family...
