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

44mm

100mm
