Panasonic continues to lead the charge with micro 4/3 lenses. I'm not likely to pick up the fisheye, but it makes me wonder, "Where is the late, great Zuiko lens design team lately?"

Panasonic is whipping Oly at their own game!

It's sure a fine lens ... but HOW OFTEN you are using 8mm?
For a quarter of the price I bought my (manual) Samyang 8mm/3.5 - usable with all my Canons & Lumixes :-)
The difference I spend for GH2 :-)
