This lens might replace bulky 18-35 art 

Very nice! Shot on GH5 and GH5S.

At little less than expected at $1,798 US.   https://photorumors.com/2019/05/27/panasonic-leica-dg-vario-summilux-10-25mm-f-1-7-asph-mft-lens-specifications-leaked-online/

I have been shouting for a fast f2 Zoom for the longest. This is like 1/2 a stop faster than that. Seriously wow. 

Though they should have avoided that L badge on it. It adds like $500 (maybe more) only for that Red Dot and Badge. Sigma is probably making the lens (they probably designed it too). 

Their catchline for this lens is worthy of a double take. It was definitely coined by a Chinese Ad Agency:

"Taking full advantage of Micro Four Thirds"

???

This lens rather neatly shows why Panasonic is heading into FF. It is a big heavy, expensive fast zoom designed to appeal to those users that see the need to make up for the lack of light and DOF inherent in a smaller sensor. At some point you inevitably conclude that a larger sensor makes more sense.

I agree and have commented previously in other threads about this.

I'm not sure why but when you go smaller than APSC there are no fast zooms available, and APSC only has the one option.
