I keep drooling over that lens myself but the $500. price tag is holding me back.

Yeah, it is probably $500 worth of a great piece of equipment, but it is still $500 to get in and find out. If you shoot in and right around 25mm (and given it is in theory a 50mm, a lot of people used to), then it is probably the best one in the mirrorless camp. Olympus 25mm f/1.8 is a very nice alternative and is right now $300. At least there are options in our world....

Just recently bought the Oly 25mm, and am amazed at how sharp it is. It's a great lens for sure, and at a reasonable price.

I need to win the Lottery I think....
The 7-14 and the 25mm would be straight in the pocket.

Great shots ! I've been to Budapest several times, but your shots are great. I also go light with my GX-7 and love the weight reduction. However, my D750 still tags along for the ride. What a combination.

Thanks - yes, Budapest is a very photogenic capital and I'd like to go back some time. Take my 5D next time perhaps. I'd need longer there though, there's so much to photograph.
