side by side between the 12-60 and 12-40 at the Olympus booth at PhotoPlus.

Lighting was typical trade show- not all that dim, so didn't get in low light testing

The 12-60 was of course larger and heavier, but not unmanageable.

12-40 consistently focused faster, but the 12-60 was no slouch... it did require a strong vertical or horizontal though.

Currently torn... do I get the 12-40 for it's constant f2.8, or the 12-60 for it's more useful zoom range and lower cost? A decision I can put off until I have some spare cash

I'm looking to sell my 12-60.  If you're interested msg me.
