Rumoured 12-50 panasonic

As an almost retired old pro, 18 months to go, I am awaiting the rumoured 12-50 f2.8-3.5 I think is the rumour.. So maybe a couple of months wait may be worth while.

I remember you from the Nikon forum and was surprised to see you turn up here. Although there seem to be a few of us.

I shot on Olympus professionally for a short time between Canon and Nikon and the lenses were great. The 150 f2 was wonderful but big, and I know your trying to get away from size. The 50 was also very good but I tended to shoot on the 14-54 and 50-200, it was press/pr work. Never had an issue with any of the lenses. A friend had the 300 f2.8 for bird shots and that was also excellent. It's a real shame Olympus slipped up on pro bodies, and most people I knew who tried Olympus, went to Nikon for the higher pixel count. IMHO all they needed to do was put a larger sensor in the E1 and a larger screen on the back. Hey! but what do I know.
