It's big, it's heavy, the AF is worse than useless and it has no OIS. It would seem to have little going for it were it not for the fact that it blows my 12-35 away in terms of edge and corner resolution at infinity. OK my 12-35 is a bad sample but I picked the OL up for 1/4 of the price of a replacement 12-35 or 12-40 and I get some useful extra reach as well. It has proper MF as well ( physical coupling of focus ring to lens elements) and it's very easy and quick to MF. Distortion is a bit gull wing at the wide end and not corrected by LR profiles. DXO doesn't have a profile either. Main thing is I now have a lens which doesn't turn detail at the corners and edges to mush.

Can you post comparable shots taken with bad 12-35 and newlywed 12-60?
