Are the constant aperture Panasonic lenses worth it (and are you wating for Olympus?)

Right now, when I need a quality zoom and size, weight & focusing speed aren't vital, I'm quite happy using my Oly 4/3 12-60.

I'm not considering the Panny 2.8 zooms because:

1) the 35 of the 12-35 I find too short - I would still have to change lens often to get those missing Millimetres.

2) I don't really have a use for a 35-100 f/2.8

3) The Panny lenses are probably bigger (OIS) and have more CA than possible Oly ones.

I'd be interested in an Oly 12-xx 2.8 (or 2.8-4.0) zoom, *if* it comes close to the 12-60 quality (and is far batter than the 12-50) and is considerably lighter than the 12-60.

12-40 would be the absolute minimum range. 12-45 or 12-50 would be better.
