Does anybody have both lenses? I'm using the Lumix on my Pana G80 and generally I'm pleased with the results. Still I'm wondering whether the Oly will be a significant improvement IQ-wise, at comparable focal lenghts and apertures?
I'm not interested in alternatives like the PanaLeica 12-60 (already had a copy, which was actually worse than the Lumix) or the Pana 12-35mm, and I know that I'll be losing Dual IS.

I find the IQ on the 12-35 far superior to the 12-40 having used both.


but on which body? have you tried both on both platforms? i agree that the 12-35 is stellar, but i haven't used mine enough to make a comparison now i have the 12-60/2.8


I have my 12-35 on an EM1MKII and personally find Lumix lenses have the edge over Olympus lenses but that's just my opinion from real world comparisons.
