For your Lapland adventure and the Northern Lights, wide angle would be the best approach. When you catch a really great display, it fills the whole sky. It truly is a wonderful experience. Have fun
One of the main reasons I got my VF-2 ordered, no need to wear my glasses while framing/focusing.

A VF-2 is on the horizon. Definitely. Best price I have seen one for in the UK is around 175.00 on Amazon.
My finger keeps hovering over the "buy" button for a Panny 14mm though. With Christmas just out of the way (and four kids to keep happy) money is a little tight at the moment and I can't justify buying both right now. I'm thinking the 14mm will maybe come in more useful in Lapland than the VF-2 so that looks like the way I'll be heading for the moment.
