Re: Robin Wong's 12-200 review is out

I would love/hope to see this as well.  I'm a new GX9 owner and one thing I found I'm already quite tired of is walking around on hikes/nature walks and swapping out the kit 12-60 and 45-150.  The 14-140 looks promising although the kit 12-60 is very sharp and wonder if the 14-140 could match that within the respective focal ranges.

Now the new Olympus 12-200 looks interesting but assuming image quality is acceptable, one big turnoff is that you are already at f6 by 100mm.  Plus I assume the Panasonic 14-140 with lens IS on a Panasonic body is going to give better total IS then the 12-200 which would rely on the camera IS only.

Very helpful would be comparison to competition like the Panasonic 14-140 (which I have and have used a lot) and Sony RX10 iv.

Example: Would it be worth upgrading from 14-140 to 12-200 just for the long end and better sharpness.
