These are sharp, economical lenses but both are soft on the long end. Of course I want the 12-35 or 12-40 but they're too expensive. Plus for speed I have 14/2.5 (with the 11mm converter), Sigma 2.8, and soon the 20/1.7. Olympus 14-42mm - I was thinking of buying the Pan 14-45 used for under $200 which also works with my 11mm converter (and I'd sell my mint 14-42 for $80). But now I'm thinking I'll be able to get the new 12-32 for $400 (would only cost me $220 if I also sold the 11mm for $100). I'm confident the 12-32 will match the 14-45 in sharpness. But, similar to how I'd have to throw the 11mm in the bag for the 14-45, with the 12-32 I'd need to throw a longer prime with me (which would be more useful than the pain in the butt 11mm converter). Do you guys think the 12-32 would be the best option? The silver does look badass on the black PM2 Olympus 40-150mm - I paid $99 for this new. I like the lens, but it's soft over 100mm and I heard that the Panasonic offerings are better. I'm not looking to spend too much. How good are the Panasonic offerings in comparison (45-150, 45-175, 45-200)? I haven't read too much about them. The 45-175's offerings seem nice. Thanks for any input!
