Panasonic 8-18mm

Looks potentially interesting, especially at around 250g lighter than the Oly 7-14 f2.8:

It takes screw-in filters, too.

If this is purple flare free on Olympus bodies, then I'm very interested.

Yeah, but I'll wait for a few reviews from reliable sources first.

Re: Panasonic 8-18mm

It's more compact than the Oly too, but initial prices (WEX are offering it at 1049) seem a bit high to me. Hopefully they'll drop when it becomes available.
