The difference between the M. Zuiko 12-42 IIR and the M. Zuiko 40-150 ED is also exactly 77g - and the change in weight is quite noticeable when switching between those two lenses on my E-P3.

Perhaps you are an HSP - Highly Sensitive Photographer.

Seriously, though, do you find that extra weight too ponderous and unwieldy? I was also hoping the 12-40 would be smaller than the 12-35, but I think I'll probably be alright with it.

The E-P5 weighs weighs 15 oz. with battery. The total weight is just

over one pound. Weighs less than my gym water bottle that I carry around all the time.
