The main downside is that AF on the 12-60 is noisy and takes 1-2 seconds on micro 4/3 bodies, and of course it's large enough to make handling on a small body awkward.

That does not bother me too much, since I resorted to MF in liveview with the E-600 anyway, as autofocus results were very inconsistent (tough I may go back to the E-420). And since I hold the lens-body combo by the lens, I'll have no balance issues.

Cheers
