Why did you pick the larger Olympus lens with close-up focusing and the manual focus feature? Why not the Panasonic 12-35 F/2.8?

The Panasonic weighs about 80 grams LESS than the Olympus.

It really seems there is cherry picking on both sides here.

Well, if I cherry-picked, it didn't help my case, did it? You proved my case even better with the Panasonic lens. Thanks.

In truth, I picked the Olympus 12-40 because I think it's the better lens, especially on the E-M10 body which compensates for Olympus lens flaws (e.g., barrel distortion). It's a good match to that body.
