They are expensive and I am waiting for Olympus.

What makes you think those from Olympus are going to be cheaper.

I`m waiting to see what Olympus come up with, for the simple point there lens offering could be smaller.

Could be cheaper, but maybe not.

Could be smaller, but maybe not.

Could be better quality, but could be poorer quality.

Could appear this year, or the next, or the next.

In the meantime, for those of us who are thoroughly enjoying using the 12-35mm on a daily basis, it's definitely worth it.. And it didn't cost much either once I factored in the money made from lenses I no longer used regularly that were sold.

Damn right, bowie, on all counts.

Add: wo ;t have OIS.

And almost certainly will zoom in the opposite direction. So if you’ve got other Panny lenses, stick with them.
