Thanks Gregm61!

I'm still getting my feet wet in the micro four thirds world so I appreciate the information. That's one lens I can cross off my "want" list.

The rumor of something like a 12-40mm f2.8 M. Zuiko keeps cropping up, so it sounds like there's something out there we're going to hear about this year at some point that's somewhat similar to the 12-60 Zuiko.

Just to show the size of the lens, here's the 12-60 Zuiko, with adapter, fitted to my E-PL1 before I sold it..

I myself actually do not mind a M43 lens this size, provided we can get the same IQ.  I think the rumoured Olympus 12-40mm f/2.8 should be smaller, and on the bigger and heavier E-M5 work better than on this, even better with an optional grip.  I hope Olympus do not compromise too much for size, like Panasonic did with its 12-35mm.  Those who do not agree can buy the 12-35mm.  I would rather have more quality.
