Doing all things Canon, MFT, Sony and Fuji
The 8-24f4 seems in the right way, at such wide, shooting landscape enough DOF is always a good thing, if I were an owner of this lens I would rarely use it at f4, making a more compact f5.6 sister would even make more sense
To me the 8-25 is the PERFECT range for traveling.
If I were still shooting MFT, I'd definitely buy it.
I think f4 is right as f5.6 would be too limiting IMO (and already hit by diffraction).

Toni, this is a 16-50mm f8 full frame equivalent. If f8 seems right for "such a wide", or even f11, why would you choose that f2.8 lens for your FF wide?
BTW I wonder how much distortion this one is going to have in uncorrected RAWs... (Speaking after being "impressed" by the figures mentioned in the Sony 16-55 discussion...)
Is olympus designing these lens or the new company? Unclear of the partnership arrangement. I guess either way we will know more about these lenses when they are released.
