I bought the 12-200 a couple of weeks ago to be used on a month long trip this June. While I've got the 12-100 f/4 along with way to many other lenses, I wanted something on my E-M5 II that was "good enough" for the daily photos as we stopped along the trip. The extra FL was appealing to me. After a few walk-about's with it, I think I'll keep it. Results up to 150mm are pretty decent, even 200mm, when I hold still, is good enough. It focuses close enough at 200mm to be useful in the flower gardens. I'll be carrying other lenses for some special stops with the grandaughter who'll be going with us.
