Panasonic 10-25mm f/1.7 lens rumoured price

Rumoured to be around $2.5k. If true it could mark the start of a new 'premium' revolution for M4/3rds, with the E-M1X and this lens (and others like it) being at the top of the pricing table. We have plenty of cheaper glass in the format (including the used market too) so it is nice to see some more premium offerings in the works.

Obviously rumours are just that, but I am wondering how many people would be happy to drop that much cash on what could be a spiritual successor to the old SHG glass of the original 4/3rds format.

I'm hoping Olympus fires back with their own take on a super bright 'standard' zoom... they could call the new lens lineup ProPlusĀ
