Awhile back, I posted a notice saying that my GH2 & my 14-140 panny took a swim in the Aegean----Poseidon's revenge. Well today, I ordered a GH3, however, I have held off replacing that lens as I question what might be a better fit for my kit---hence your input for a replacement lens.
Some parameters: My primary system is Nikon, mostly zoom with one prime, that being a 50mm.
The Panny kit is for travel & quickies, and I am satisfied with just a few lenses & less weight.
I did like the 14-140 very much---it covered a lot of territory, and I used it most often as compared to my 2 other Panny's.
The other Panny's I have now & will be using on the new GH3 are thus: a 14 to 45 and a 100-300.
So I would say there is a void in between the 45 & 100 but I do not see a Panny which might fill that void. The 35-100 took my interest, however, that's a lot of dollars and overlapping to the right with what I have. The other lenses which I have given thought to were the 45's, 200,175,150 but again overlapping on the right with what I have.
I suppose I could do a prime 40 Panny.
If you have a clear thought regarding this muddle, let me hear your suggestions.
