The 12-100 Pro is the most versatile and useful lens I've used in over 40 years of photography. I has the PL 12-60 and as nice as it was, sold it off.

The Oly 12-100 with the PL 8-18 {on an EM1-II} will be my travel and daily driver good light system along with the GX850 & PL 15mm F1.7 when needed.  A pretty sweet setup for me.  Just need to add something long for the few occasions I need it.

When comparing sizes to other systems, The EM1-II & 12-100 combo is 'about' the same size and weight of my Nikon Z6 and 24-70.. practically the same when hauling either in a Peak 5L Sling.  We'll see how much I miss the 71-200 range when I only go out with the Z6/24-70 as I'm mostly a wide shooter {city/landscape/architecture}.

The 12-100 will keep me firmly in the M43 camp. For me, it's that good!
