Waiting (impatiently) for the 12-40
In reply to FrankParis, Nov 5, 2013

Ha ha. Yeah, I hear you. Despite its versatility and nice small footprint, the 12-50 leaves quite a bit to be desired on the IQ front. The 12-40 will be super. I have no doubt about that.

To some extent I think we obsess too much about lens IQ. The 12-50 may not be the greatest lens but it's certainly usable. To me subject matter trumps the lens any day of the week. Would these have been better with the 12-40? Maybe. Maybe not. But I want the 12-40!
