I must stop looking at this thread! Ever since I heard about this lens after I picked up a 12 - 40 f/2.8 for a good price, I have wanted it! Looks as though it would be a perfect walk around or holiday lens.

Yes ...

Yes ...

Yes, Rose.

First time I handled one, I got out my credit card, and pre-ordered.

The focus transitions are exquisite. The optical performance is unbelievable for most primes, let alone any other zoom, let alone an 8.33x superzoom.

I've never regretted the purchase in 4.5 years.

You're making things very difficult for me John!

Maybe my Christmas present this year .... haven't had the 12 - 40 off the camera much, only when I really want to use something else. I can see this living on the camera pretty much!

The only time mine comes off my E-M1 MkII is when my 75-300 MkII or FTs 50-200 MkI get a fleeting go.

The 12-100 would have to be the ultimate do nearly everything lens with with the MkII.

I am thinking about the 8-25 when it has some reviews and real life examples under its belt.

My E-M1 MkI and E-PM2 share my other lenses.

I have an M5 Mk11 which I can use for other lenses. If I did get the the 12 -100 I could sell the 14 - 140 (Panny, which was my go to before 12 -40), as it would not be needed. Haven't had it on the camera since buying the 12 - 40 actually.

Have emailed the NZ company regarding availability!
