Re: Who has both Olympus 12-100mm and 40-150mm f2.8?

I have the 12-40, 40-150, and 12-100, purchased in that order. The 12-100 was purchased earlier this year and since then I have not used my 12-40 at all and will likely sell it soon.

My two lens combo now it my PL 8-18 and 12-100. My 40-150 Pro is a specialty lens that I use mostly for shooting flowers - shooting it mostly at the long end and early wide open for the reach and narrow FOV and shallow FOV that I love for flower shots. It has good mag, 0.2x, and with my 1.4x TC I get 0.3x mag, and a decent wildlife lens. As a side note, I stopped using my Oly 60mm macro after getting the 40-150 Pro for flowers.

I just returned from a week of camping and mountain hiking and only used the 12-100. That lens also doubled for shooting flowers at 100mm. It does this very well, the 40-150 just does it much better.

Okay, bottom line, I have no plans to sell my 40-150 (plus TC), but I do plan to sell my 12-40.  If all my stuff gets stolen I would buy the PL 8-18 and Oly 12-100 and keep it simple.
