Problem is longer is slower if not bigger and also extends longer. Front filter is already 72mm. Could be better shorter + cropping a little.

14-150 is f/5.6 on the long end. Same image cropped a little, lower ISO when you need it faster. Similar result, smaller lens. I like the 12mm wide though. Comes in handy sometimes. Better for a one lens solution. I think I'd like a 12-150 better, a little bigger to maintain f/5.6 on the long end. I'll take f/4 on the wide end to get it.

I like a consumer 12-100, weather sealed, $600 for travel. A little bigger than the 14-150 but f/2.8 - 4. Don't often go past 100mm when I travel but use 12mm. 12-100 is too big/heavy for me to carry for a long time.

I'm in the same camp. I'd really like to know how the 12-200 compares to the 14-150, especially in the corners at 12/14mm.

I'd love to have a slightly lighter 12-100 consumer zoom, but I am seriously considering this lens as the next best choice. If it's slightly better than the 14-150 in the 12-100 range, I'll probably get it.
