I use the 12-32 kit lens and the 40-150R PF (plastic fantastic) which are cheap. Apertures slow down quick on superzooms and it is already f/6.2 at 100mm where it is f/5 on the PF. The PF retains decent IQ so is perhaps comparable the the 12-200 at similar FL. OTOH, the 12-200 appears to be mechanically a better made lens with a bit more reach. I'd have to weigh the convenience, cost and a few other factors before deciding.

I've gone the same route with the 12-32 and 40-150. It keeps the weight down. I've added an Oly 45 F/1.8 to complete the three lens kit.

If I need 400mm, I'll borrow the wife's Canon G3X.

How the heck did I end up with this username?
