    I am not to lazy to Google but when it comes to m4/3 stuff the info on this site is usually better informed.

    I'm on hols at moment with a 12-50mm olly. I think it's very under rated, though obviously it's a bit slow and a bit big.

    There are a few 14-150 lenses out there and though I am not generally a wide shooter the 12 end on the kit is so convenient at times.

    Is there any talk of a 12- something else, maybe 100? Just wondering is there something to consider for my next holiday. Thanks

    Theres a 40-150/2.8, 300/4, 7-14/2.8 definitely coming from oly, there have been rumors of a wide-ish prime around 9mm, but I haven't seen anything about a 12-XXX zoom.

    There's a rumor of a 12-50mm F2.8-4 on the way. If it comes though, it won't be by the holidays, as this sounds like a kit lens for a new OMD model, and there's not going to be a new one for the rest of the year...

    This is what I am hoping for. Have the EM10 and just felt that the 12-40/2.8 was just a bit too big/heavy for me. If they could keep the IQ close, lose the weather sealing but reduce the size/weight by about 1/3 I would be running to a store!!!!
