12-40 trounces the 12-35 ... I've used both.

Well designed gear performs better for longer than well marketed gear.

No it does not. The Oly has a little more reach, is sharper in the corners and has less CA.

the 12-35 however is smaller, lighter, and has image stabilisation. Which is important for many panasonic camera owners. CA is corrected in Pana bodies and recent Oly bodies.

And my copy of the 12-35 is a tad sharper in the center compared to the 12-40 of a friend. They are both very sharp however.

So they both have their strong points. Neither outclasses the other.
