I have both. I got the 40-150 first and then several years later the 12-100.

Same here. Had the 40-150 for years before the 12-100. Both ar very useful, and fairly different since you also can use the 40-150 with TC.

That said, I'm not sure I'd buy the 40-150 today since I also have the 100-400 which is much slower than 40-150, but covers from 100mm and up so I get 12-400 with only two lenses. I'd say that the usefulness of the 40-150 depends on what other lenses you plan to get. If you see 40-150 as your only telezoom then it still makes a lot of sense today, even when you have the 12-100.

Another option is the Panasonic 50-200 which dont have fixed F2.8, but covers about the same as 40-150 + 1.4TC.
