Panasonic 12-35mm and 35-100mm X lenses F2.0, Weather Sealed and $1700???

Source:M43 Rumors

M43 Rumors has new updates on the upcoming Panasonic 12-35mm and 35-100mm X lenses. It looks like Panasonic could be going big and expensive with the new X series lenses and the Panasonic GH3. There is possibility of weather sealing and a $1700 price tag per lens. The fast f2.0 aperture idea seems to not be completely dead. This is really potentially good news and leads to speculation about if Panasonic will be releasing a camera that has weather sealing. The successor to the GH2 could be a big jump in the features department.

I am personally still hoping that they will release a 12-35mm F2.0 lens. It will be most likely be relatively big, heavy, expensive, and not for everyone. However a really solid fast zoom for video users would be worth every penny.
