...... For me the close focusing distance and new in camera CA correction is a big deal.

The in-camera CA correction is with E-M1 only so far (and with all Panasonics), but truth be told I use Panasonic lenses on E-PL5 and so far have not been troubled by CA affliction anyway, it's a totally over-rated thing to worry about, and easily removed/disguised anyway in post if it shows up.

Leave off 100% pixel peeping and most problems fade away.

As for 12-40mm relevance to me, yes, definitely on my shopping list. Not sure when but definitely for next major overseas holiday, and it will be on that E-PL5.
