Oly 12-40mmF2.8 is on its way
In reply to RoelHendrickx, Feb 5, 2014

The lens is on its way to me.

A couple of upcoming photo opportunities made it worthwhile to go ahead and purchase it.

Once it arrives, I will of course put it through its paces in real life use.

And if I feel like it, I may even do my own little non-scientific test, shooting images of my bookcase full of colours and small letters on spines, and with something else in front of it (for DOF).  I would probably make test shots with ZD12-60on E-5 and µFT12-50 and µFT12-40 both on E-M5, at focal lengths 12, 25 and 40, and several apertures : wide open, F4, F5.6 and F8.
