Any love for the Panasonic 12-35 f2.8?

I am not quite sure whether it really offers much, since it isn't as wide as as the 7-14 or 9-18 and isn't suitable for use with a wet lens like the 14-45 or 14-42, but there are several of you guys who know so much more and have so much more access to lenses and ports, that I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts...
I am not very interested in the 12-50 due to the power zoom and very expensive port and ring.

The 12-35 is a top performer on land, but limited use UW, with no macro function, need a bulky dome port, and the 2.8 speed is really not an advantage where most photos are using flash. Not saying results wouild not be good, but it is just not optimal.
I would definitely recommend the 7-14 in that dome for wide work, and the 12-50 as a generalist lens. The power zoom is no issue at all. Look at my most recent post in the om-d thread (today) to see what this lens offers.
