Re: Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8

I recently got the 12-100mm f4 after using the 12-35mm and 35-100mm f2.8 pair for years. I haven't used the latter much recently, but will probably hang onto them for when I need wider apertures, and the 12-35mm is a brilliant lightweight and small general lens.

My 12-35mm has had minor dust particles from early on. I used to worry about it, but no effect on images. I think it must breathe quite a bit on zooming, and suck dust in then. It does have a little PF on contrasty skies with branches compared to the 12-100mm, but easily dealt with in LR.
