Do you know anything about the 12-60 SWD for dslr and how the focus speed is affected on the micro4/3? That would be an important consideration for me -- whether to get the adaptor and keep the 12-60, or just go for the 12-50?

It's slower than on 4/3rds but pretty acceptable in my opinion. I am not a sports shooter, though, and do not require a lightning fast focus. The optics, however, deliver on MFT just as well as regular FT.

I am selling mine but not because of any useability issues. I had simply settled on E-P2 + 20 mm as my travel package and zoom lenses are no longer for me.
