Default Panasonic Announces Premium 12-35mm f/2.8 ASPH Lumix G X Lens; DPReview has a Hands-on look

The first of the two rumoured premium lenses has been announced by Panasonic: It is a stabilised 12-35mm f/2.8 lens bearing the X label to denote its status (again with the X; there are 25 other letters to use. I propose J), which basically means this is like a 17-50/2.8 on APS-C cameras or a 24-70/2.8 on 35mm cameras. The size, while being larger than other Micro Four Thirds lenses, is still considerably smaller than a 24-70/2.8. Unfortunately the lens will only be available in August, and there is no pricing information. I suspect it will be north of US$1,000, just like most zooms of its class. Interestingly enough, the lens is weather resistant as well. Is a GH3 coming soon?
