    I saw somewhere in the last few days a link comparing the size on the 12-40 to other lenses. It seems like it was on the camera size comparison site I usually use but I went back there and the lens is not offered yet for comparison. I did a search on the forums and google and couldn't find it there either. Does anyone have that link?

    Coincidentally, the new Oly Pro 12-40 lens has exactly the same dimensions as the first generation Pana 14-140 lens (make sure you pick the "HD" version, not the newer one).

    Whichever site you were on should have that lens in it's database.

    I got my hands on an EM-1 today with the 12-40 lens. Very nice I must say.

    The camera is bigger than the EM-5 but not greatly so. However the 12-40 lens is reasonably big. I would have to think twice before getting one for travel purposes. You would start to lose the size advantage over DSLRs. But on the other hand I guess you have to expect Pro quality lenses are going to be bigger than kit lenses.

    I think it is likely that I will end up getting an EM-1 sometime in the next 6 months.
