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.

You're looking for a small light weight 12-100mm f2.8-4 consumer lens that cost $600? Olympus will never release one because it kill sales of their Pro 12-100mm f4. Panasonic too because leica 12-60mm f2.8-4. In your perfect world we can have best of all worlds but cons of none, however we aren't in it. Have a more realistic expectation or disappointment will be your BFF.

The two Panasonic 12-60s co-exist side by side, so I don't really see a problem with it. It doesn't have to match the IQ, build quality, or close focusing abilities of the 12-100 pro. Just be slightly better than the 14-150 and weather-sealed.

Probably not for 600, though.

You seems to ignore kit version of 12-60mm isn't f2.8-4. Regardless how much you wanted it, 12-100mm f2.8-4 will never be a cheap consumer lens. This is because on spec sheet at least it beats existing premiums lens. Enjoy your time with your BFF.

Again, didn't see they wanted it super fast. 3.5-5.6 should be much more sensible.

Not sure what your last sentence is supposed to mean.

I don't know who are the "they" you're referring to.

The person you replied to initially.

The initial post I'm replying to demand for a consumer grade 12-100mm f2.8-4 at $600 and you came in to defend it as reasonable but not at $600.

I misread one post, clarified my mistake twice, yet you feel the need to harp on. Not sure why you have to be so antagonistic.

Since you're reading and comprehending selectively there's no point continue this conversation. The meaning of my last sentence is within the post you've respond to but of course you've selectively ignored it.

Your failure to communicate clearly is not on me.
