I’m not the vlogging type but I would be extremely disappointed if the camera just came with the 12-32mm because Panasonic didn’t have the resources to design a new lens.

Let look at the other lenses.

  • 12mm 1.4 - Too expensive to be bundled.
  • 12-35mm 2.8 - Too expensive
  • 8-18mm - Too expensive
  • 7-14mm - can it do video or does it need an update?

FYI, 7~14 f/4 can do video nicely. When I took interior shots, it is one of my obvious choices on 4K or HD.

So my conclusion is either the vlogging bundle is going to be expensive, it will have the 12-32 instead or could see a slower wide prime like 10mm or 12mm 1.7 or slower coming out.

If kit lens will be a f/1.7 prime, except for the 25, it must ask for a relatively higher price. Never good news for a new model. Indeed Prime is not for everyone. For veteran M43 users, they should have their own choice of lenses already. No matter what will be the kit lens, it would likely be de-kitted right away...

I bought 3 Panny cameras in past few years, and had de-kitted the 14~42 mk-II and 12~60 on two purchased...
