new 35-100

I saw that there was a new 35-100 added to the road map - i understand it most likely will be a slower lens, which is ok with me.  Once added to the road map, is there a typical time period to actually get to market?  was thinking about a 45-150, which i know is clearly longer, but this length definitely appeals to me

thanks much

Who's roadmap? - Panasonic or Olympus. Panasonic already have a 35-100mm F2.8.

Hmmmmm

Wonder what the length and weight are like - I only use tele every now and then and my oly 40-150 does a good job.

If its a little smaller and higher quality, even as 3.5-5.6, could be worth a look.

Re: new 35-100

Anyones guess when or if the upcoming compact Panasonic 35-100 will reach the market.  Last year Panasonic had a 150/f2.8 on the previous lens road map with an expect release time of late 2013.  On the just release lens road map the 150/f2.8 has been removed.  So I will guess the release of the compact 35-100 will depend on how well the new GM1 sells.

According to the lens roadmap Panny released, this lens will be released in 2014.  I'm not sure what the Japanese next to the lenses mean.  Anyone who can read Japanese want to help?

Japanese text

The Japanese text is expected release dates:

12-35 vario - end of november

15mm f1.7 - planned release sometime in 2014

35-100 vario - planned release sometime in 2014

42.5 - planned release sometime in 2013-2014

Not all the useful.  In the case of the 12-35 that's probably the Japanese release date. May vary by country.

Re: new 35-100

Unlike the 12-32 the 35-100 does appear to have a manual focus ring.  I wonder if the 12-32 will have manual focusing capability with any older bodies via a firmware update or will only work with the new GM1.

Re: new 35-100

Based on the picture I have seen, it does not appear that much smaller than the 45-150mm zoom lens.
