Some early samples from Panasonic's "Pro" level ultra-wide zoom, I'm sure I'll add some colour stuff once I get it - these were all taken on a dull, rainy day in Madrid (that doesn't happen very often...).

I'll add a few more images, mostly from a recent trip to Porto in Portugal. This was the only zoom I took for the trip and I found the range very useful - 16mm ultra wide up to 35mm which is not too far off a normal. I took most shots one or other extreme of the range with very little in between, but I found the image quality to be excellent regardless of the settings.

I will add however, that I have experienced some occasional AF problems with the lens. Sometimes it misses focus by a small amount despite my S5's focus confirmation. It's sometimes enough to be visible in the viewfinder without magnification, sometimes not and I don't see it until reviewing afterwards. It may be related to the known Lumix "outgassing" problem from which my copy suffers, but I haven't noticed any other performance issues.

I like this last image but it demonstrates the misfocusing I mentioned - if you zoom in it's quite soft.
