    Pana's 14mm f2.8 pancake

    Maybe this is old news but I've just bumped into this and I'm super excited that Panasonic is supposed to be releasing a 14mm f2.8 pancake! I've browsed around but information is scarce. Does anyone know about dates and prices?

    Oh, here are the links:

    It's an official part of their roadmap. Price not announced. 2010 is all they have said to the best of my knowledge.

    To be honest it is not that exciting a lens to me. Not even a full stop faster than the kit.

    Now, if it were a 12mm pancake for a reasonable price, I'd be ecstatic. Or, if it were f2 instead of f2.8, I'd find it more interesting.

    I only just learned yesterday that Olympus will be bringing an 11 or 12mm prime lens to market too... good to see that the message is getting through!

    An 11mm f2.8, 20mm f1.7, 40mm f1.4 prime kit would be fantastic.

    Cheers

    a 14mm would make the GF a an irresistiblecamera for me as I would get it with the 20mm and have a compact camera which was pocketable!

    now if they put a 9 or 11mm in there I'm on for it (unless its really expensive)

    anyone wanna buy my 9-18?

    Let's not complain about any new compact lenses. I'll take them all day long over the varios.

    Is that really confirmed or just where people are interpreting the dot on the roadmap?

    Ditto here.

    How real is this? I agree on the kit, although I'd lean towards the 45 macro at the top end.
