What do folks think about the Olympus 12-60 2.8-4 lens for travel? I don't have one myself, but I'm surprised there aren't more comments regarding that lens considering its range and 2.8-4 aperture. Is there a reason this lens isn't discussed much?

It's a four-thirds lens made for the DSLR system so you need an adapter to use it with a micro body, AF is very slow and (my opinion) it's way too big for the intended use by the OP.

I had a 12-60 with my Olympus DSLR system, and it was one of the first lenses I divested myself of when I decided to make micro four-thirds my one and only system.
