I have the GX7, and yes I know it depends on what you like to shoot ... but I'd like to hear from people who own one or both...

which one do you prefer and why?

(I'm leaning towards the 35-100 as the more practical option, but I love primes, so?!)


If I had to choose one or the other, the 35-100/2.8 is what I would get, especially knowing I already have both (still do) and elect to take the 35-100/2.8 almost every single time, and that's with an Olympus E-M1. I use it in tandem with either the 12-35 Panasonic or 12-40 Olympus.

With a GX-7......just get the 35-100.
