Re: Two reasons why I'll probably buy the 12-35mm

It will be very strange if the Oly 12-40 have good quality.

Please have a look at current 17 1.8 and 2.8: nothing to smile about.

Also my copy of 12 mm f.2.0 is not sharp in any way.

I thing wide angle lenses is the weak point of Oly.

Very surprised to see the opposite here.

Sorry you've had the problems with that. My 12/2 is very, very sharp at all aperatures. My 17/2.8 isn't though.

The 17/1.8 is pretty good from most accounts.

I don't really know how one or at most two lenses is any indication of every single lens Olympus has made or will make (especially since most of their zooms are excellent and most of their primes are as well).
