Given your love for the 12-40 (I share this, I have one too) and as you are an Olympus shooter, can I ask what made you choose this over the Olympus 7-14?

I had heard/read a lot more positives about the PL8-18 plus, with the discount, it was a good deal. In hindsight, maybe the Oly would have been a better choice. But, I'm sticking with this for at least while - I don't churn lenses.

Over the Olympus 7-14 it takes screw on filters, is lighter, has a conventional 16-35 full frame equivalent, and is sharper in the corners (reputedly).  Mine has no hesitation when focusing on my EM-1 II.
