Ok ok, so where are the FASTER ZOOMS?
1

Well, I have retired my panasonic GX1 and will be selling it as i recently bought the olympus em5 ii. I got it for a good deal at $475 during the recent sales.

So back to the subject, since I will also be using the em5 ii for photo and video due to its 1080p video and mic capabilities. I am looking at the zoom lenses only to find out we are still at f2.8.

I had my panasonic gx1 since 2012 and fast forward still no faster zoom such as f2 or f1.8 CONSTANT.

If sigma can do it for crop sensors then surely the size of an f.18 zoom lens for this system should be smaller.

The prime lens for f1.2 from olympus are expensive and no plans from what I am seeing from roadmaps.

sad.

BTW my next lenses will be a pana leica 5mm f1.4 since i am now seeing it for $300.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
