The top of your article says f/1.4, not f/1.7.

Another beautiful lens I won't be able to afford. This one will probably be close to the 1600 usd mark or more

Good glass is rarely cheap, but if this lens performs really well, think of it as a substitute for multiple prime lenses. In that sense, it could cost potentially less and provide a level of convenience and flexibility. I'm guessing this will come in at more than $1600, but could still be a great value. Bring it on Panasonic!

If it performs as described, this could be a great lens for film makers. I love my primes, but I'm not above using zooms if the quality is there.
