I haven't used the 12-60, but I did use all other kit lenses in the micro43 world. The best was the original 14-45 Panasonic, but they all left me wanting more (more speed, better corner sharpness, weather sealing, consistency of the results....)

Then I got the 12-35 and I've been happy ever since. It's not a particularly exciting lens, but to me it ticks all the boxes. It's well built, it has constant aperture, it focused quicky, it's sharp (though the little 12-32 is sharper in the center wide open), but most importantly it delivers good results all the time.

Same here.  It's my "vanilla" lens but it is also responsible for the largest majority of my keeper photos.  It's not the lens that excites me the most but it's the one that covers more of my needs than the others by a large margin and it's the lens I'd choose if I could only have one.
