Replacing 4:3 12-60 SWD with M4:3 12-40 mm?
6 months ago

I bought my first M4:3, the E-M1 about three months ago and have been very happy with it. I had decided to go light and sold the E-3 and E-5 bodies. I am perfectly happy with the 12-60 SWD and 50-200 SWD with the E-M1 with regard to IQ and sharpness. Now I am thinking of going the next step, to get the 12-40 2.8 as a replacement for the 12-60 SWD. I am wondering if anyone has replaced the 12-60 SWD for 12-40 mm and see improved or same IQ? or if the 12-60 SWD is good enough?
