I don't, sorry. Just try and make your Tamron work, it should.

That Lumix 14mm is so tiny it's easy to "lose" in a corner of the bag. Since you already own it, that's your best solution for in the car. I have both that and the 20mm and they are great lenses for the GH2. Add the 45mm f1.8 Olympus and you have a great prime kit that takes a small bag.

It's not an exciting lens, many look down on it and it does not deserve that. It covers a most useful "wide - normal - portrait telephoto" range and delivers more than reasonable sharpness. Mine is the Olympus "kit" 14-42 and when I shot the same subject with both the Lumix 14 and the 14mm end of the "kit" lens I had to "pixel peep" to see any difference in edge definition. In prints and projected on an 80" screen both looked the same.

It really doesn't begin to let you down until you start working in low light, but then you have that covered with the Lumix 14 and 20.
