This would be VERY cool, I want one:
Wasn't there a similar 4/3rds lens? I vaguely remember a 14-54? with variable aperture 2.8 to 4. The lens was very popular and priced well below the 12-60 f2.8 pro lens.
I'm excited about this prospect. I want to think price and size will make it attractive to those (like me) that don't want to drop a grand on a heavy zoom with constant f2.8.
I alternate between the P14 and P20. Some situations spark constant lens swaps. I don't want a kit or pro zoom but a sharp enthusiast grade lens would be awesome.
I love the usefull-ness of my 12-50, but wish it were a stop or 2 faster on the long end. But I won't pay for a pro 12-40. Plus, I love the Fn button, power zoom, and the pseudo-macro, which are missing from the pro model.
Macro is 1:1 magnifying ratio, not the range to front lens of the objective.Hi,
The 12-40mm has a Fn button; and it does do macro, although somewhat weaker than the 12-50, it can do macro at all focal lengths.
