Really shocked we didn't see the GF20-35 today. It seems to be pretty much ready to go, right?I mean they've showed off pre-production versions of it already.

Think it was just a plastic mockup to show the scale of the lens.   4 mths wait isn't long for maybe a more versatile lens than the 30mm.  Obviously depends what you need.  But I guess the 30mm will be lighter than the GF20-32.  I guess also quite a tricky lens to design, the X1D widest lens is 21mm, and that's a prime, so going 20mm in a zoom is even more challenging.  That's 15.8mm in 35mm terms I think.

I think I'm just going to get the 30mm prime instead of waiting it out. It's for hobbyist use anyways. I think what was said above, that it won't be coming out until the September event.
