    Nice video by Robin Wong testing several "legacy" 4/3 lenses on the EM1.

    AF performance was snappier than I thought!

    Focus performance with the 12-60 SWDf and 50-200 (non SWD) is excellent.

    How is the balance of the camera with the 12-60 mounted on it?

    Not great. The front element is pretty heavy, the E-M1 is better than the E-M5 but still not great. The 14-54ii is better balanced on the both the O-MD bodies and has better focusing performance on the E-M5 (of course). The 12-60 SWD has significantly faster focusing than the 14-54ii on the E-M1.

    Given the reach and performance the 12-60 has become my goto lens.

    I never got rid of the 12-60 and 50/2. It'd be nice to bring them out of retirement!

    The one I really miss is...

    the 50-200. I really look forward to bringing this out of retirement. I have the P 35-100, but the 50-200 with the 1.4 extender will be my go to tele lens for m4/3. I just never fell in love with the 75-300.
