Lens for GX-1

Oct 20, 2005

Bought a used GX-1 with the 14-42mm kit lens recently.
This combo is o.k. for me, but I would like a smaller lens for when my wife uses the camera. She will use it like a point and shoot. The Panasonic 20mm 1.7 looks ideal, but the price for the lens is more than I paid for the original kit.
I saw a Sigma 30mm 2.8 on Amazon for $199. Any opinions?

I have a GX1 to bring along occasionally on business trips.
I have the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 just about glued to it. It makes a great walk about package that is very compact and the IQ with this lens is outstanding.
I understand that it is a bit costly, but it will make your GX1 deliver the very best images possible.
I did also get a 14-45mm for more flexibility, but so far I have not even used it once.

30mm is a little tight unless you like the 60mm FX FOV for general shooting. If you go on Adorama, there's a demo copy Sigma 19mm 2.8 DN selling for $169. Either that or get a new Panasonic 14mm 2.5 off ebay for about 160-170 from a USA seller.
