  • Dependent on performance and pricing, I expect the 12-100 f4 to be the ‘big’ (relatively speaking) seller from this lot.

    • A 12-100 is definitely more functional but f4 is disappointing. I’m sure it will sell more and cost less, but the fast glass is appealing.

      • Constant f4 is pretty good for an 8.3 x zoom. The weather-sealing will be attractive to many too. I’m not in the market for it because I already have a pair of f2.8 zooms that better than cover the focal range, but I see its attraction as a high-quality general-purpose lens.

        • Maybe I’m hoping for impossibly fast zooms like the f2 zooms Olympus used to design but for m43. I know many use m43 with plenty of light, but I always used my gf/gh cameras with fast glass and at the limits. I owned a zoom for video and extreme telephoto and that was it.
