The biggest thing (pun intended) I've disliked about the 35-100mm since getting it is the size/weight.

One of the major things that initially attracted me to 4/3 DSLRs and m4/3 cameras is that the smaller sensor size/crop factor allows for smaller lenses at least compared to full frame (and in some cases APS-C) cameras.

The 50-200mm 2.8-3.5 SWD is the biggest and heaviest 4/3 lens that I use on a "regular" basis and the 35-100 -- although a GREAT lens -- has ended up staying back home or at the office more than anything.

If I sell any more of my 4/3 gear the 35-100mm will be first to go ... despite the fact that it is optically EXCELLENT.
