The Lumix 14mm f2.5 ASPH is a tiny pancake style lens included with several Lumix cameras as well as being available separately. It’s fashioned in the same style as the amazing 20mm f1.7 but is much faster at focusing, has a wider angle of view and is even smaller!
Could this be the perfect travel & landscape lens?
The Panasonic Lumix 7-14 provides one of the widest rectilinear fields of view available on any auto focus capable micro four thirds lens. Launched in 2009 with a relatively high price tag, it was the first Panasonic lens specifically aimed at the emerging micro four thirds system.
With an aperture made from 7 rounds blades with a range of f4 to f22 this ultra wide angle 7mm-14mm (14mm-28m equivalent) lens has 16 elements in 12 groups, 4 ED elements and 2 aspherical elements. This lens pre-dates Panasonic’s use of Nano coatings to prevent flare, so care made need to be taken, especially when using it on non Panasonic bodies.

If you travel, go walkabouts, need small & lightweight solutions but generally don’t like changing lenses in the open air then a super zoom could well be the perfect solution for you.
