The 11-22/2.8-3.5 was my kit zoom substitute for the E-series, which I really enjoyed for its wide capabilities if obviously missing reach. The 12-60 SWD's debut bumped that from the bag.

I think the 10-25 is an awfully nice option along those lines, made even better being constant aperture.

The 10-25 is a great lens, but not a kit lens. I doubt that any zoom lens starting at f/1.7 will have a kit price.

True, and TBF a zoom starting at 10mm won't either. Getting that extra angle of view won't be a trivial task.

My favorite 135-format WA prime is a 21/2.8 Biogon, so I understand the appeal. The Biogon is a rangefinder lens and its 21/2.8 Distagon SLR cousin is enormous by comparison. Retrofocus UWAs are much more comples.

Cheers,

Rick
