You might want to keep the M.Zuiko 7-14/2.8 Pro announced in February in mind. It is on my wish list, but street date, specs and price have not been released AFAIK. It is one of the reasons I will sell the 14 Panasonic.

The announcement by Olympus for the 7-14mm f2.8 mentioned "sometime in 2015". So, we're talking a year, at the least, before it's available. I'm quite happy with my current 7-14mm, so I can wait.

Thanks, all I saw was a pic of it and a 300...guess I better come up with Plan B. Surprised they announced it that far in advance.

Oly pre-announced the 40-150mm f2.8 earlier and there's still nothing more specific about a final announcement other than "2015". Same for the 300mm f4.

Plan B, indeed! The 7-14mm was the first "extra" lens i bought for my GH2 3 years ago. It's indispensable! The Oly f2.8 could be great, but I'll see if it'll be worth upgrading. Of course that depends on the price. But, I think it should be fairly easy to sell my 7-14mm f4 if the 7-14mm f2.8 stacks up and is substantially better.
