Dimensions, handling, (lack of) image stabilization

At wide-angle, the 12-45mm F4 Pro is only 70mm (2.75") long, and there's not much in the way of handling features; there's no L-Fn button, no focus clutch, and no IS switch. It's also worth mentioning that there's no IS switch because there's no image stabilization built into this lens.

While some may groan about this, it's likely that omitting this feature contributes to the lens' compactness, and honestly it's unlikely to be a problem with most users. All Olympus interchangeable lens cameras come with excellent built-in stabilizers, with the latest models getting up to 7 stops of stabilization just by shifting their sensors.
