Without having used any of the discussed lenses, the Pany 12-35 seems pretty solid, but from what I have seen the 35-100 is a little weak, especially wide open and on the longer end.

I haven't used the lenses for any significant amount of time either (I played with the 12-35 in a shop and was quite impressed), but from what I've read in reviews it's actually the 35-100 which is the stronger performer of the two.

Agreed - the 12-35 is great, but the 35-100 rivals the Oly 75mm for image quality sometimes. It isn't as good at 100mm as it is at 80, but it's still extremely good. Here are two samples
