You are aware that the 12-60 is as expensive (or even more expensive) than the 14-150 and the 9-18 combined? The 12-60 is a (near) professional lens, and Olympus has not yet released an equivalent for m4/3.

Kind regards,


I know, but I got them both used. But that's not my point.

I have the OM-D for about six months and the lenses a lot longer for my Pen. I'm very pleased with the camera, but I always had the idea that there was more in it than these lenses gave me. Now I know it's there.

Generally, usually I expect more performance from a lens that costs twice as much as another lens in the same range. Maybe that's just me though.

Yes, that's true, but it makes me wonder why there are no m4/3 alternatives (well it looks like that). I suppose the 4/3 system looks almost dead and m4/3 is selling well. Is it a technical problem? Smaller bajonet and smaller distance between lens and sensor? The prime lenses seem to be a lot better, but the zoom lenses...
