Panasonic GM1 and Nocticron 42.5mm, an equal marriage ?

I have recently concluded a search and buy with a requirement for a very small camera that is silent in operation, Good IQ and Zoom.

It came down the the RX100ii and GM1 and I eventually chose the GM1.

I am more then impressed with the beautifully made device with quite frankly astonishing picture quality, even with the unexpectedly sharp 12-32mm. Will write more on this later.

However for now I have decide to get a few prime lenses with good light gathering.

I have to decide between the 15mm f1.7 and 20mm f1.7 ii as a mild wide choice.

I also want one other for 70-100mm (I tend to shoot at either 35mmish or longer then 70mm - not much in between!.

The 42.5mm f1.2 Panasonic seems sublime and looks good with the GM1 (black) but is slightly unbalanced.

I wonder whether anyone has shot with this combination and can comment (or actually any other larger then normal lens on the GM1 regularly)

many thanks in advance
