Thank you everybody!

Thanks to all posters that commented the thread, for your nice and friendly comments!

I'm happy to see some love for that lens. As many, I think this lens is underrated.

For me, it's a versatile travel lens, that covers 95% of my needs.

Sure, for shooting in low light it's not the best option, and true, I whish it were faster like it's 4/3 equivalent!. But as someone said, it is can be compensted by the fabulous low light capabilities of the new bunch of m4/3 cameras.

So this lens will stay one of my favorite and most used travel zoom, until a faster 12-60 come. The 12-35 is surely awesome, but it's too short for me to be a perfect travel lens.

Finally, as Geoff (thanks for your nice comment!) said, I wonder if this lens will aquire in the future a "lengendary" status for a kit lens, like the Panasonic 14-45 (which is an awesome kit lens!).

Thanks again, and happy shooting!
