Re: IQ on the 12-60 kit vs 12-35 ii?

I cannot comment on the 12-60 kit lens other than I have read mostly good things. In my opinion, if you are happy with it then I would compliment it with the PL 8-18. The range of 12-35 is nice, but the range of 8-60mm covers essentially all one needs for travel and most types of photography. The 18mm long end of the 8-18 is the coveted 35mm FOV most used, especially for environmental portraits. Plus, it is lighter than it looks. So you might find yourself using the 8-18 more, especially for narrow streets and interiors. It is a fantastic lens.

These days, my two lens kit for essentially everything is the PL 8-18 and Oly 12-100. The 12-18mm overlap is very welcome since it negates the need to swap lenses. 12-35mm is a great range but two limiting. When I picked up a used 12-100 lens earlier this year, I completely stopped using my Oly 12-40 f/2.8 and it is now up for sale in the for sale forum
