Help me choose my first pro lens

Hello everyone,

I am considering investing in my first pro lens for my panasonic G9. I am not a professional, but would like to own at least one pro lens.

I am considering between:

Panasonic Leica 12 - 60  f2.8 - 4 - Second choice

Panasonic 12 - 35 f2.8 II - I am not sure I should consider it at all

Olympus 12 - 100 f4 - First choice

Olympus 12 - 45 f4 -  Third choice

Olympus 12 - 40 f2.8 - Fifth choice

I tested the 12 - 100 on my G9 and it was BIG, and super sharp! I am pretty much sure that all the mentioned Oly lenses are super sharp too!

From the 2 panasonic models I am thinking I like the 12 - 60 more.

I seriously like the 12 - 100 Olympus, but I am concerned that I will loose the DUAL IS that I will get with the Leica 12 - 60. Is that a worth having?

I follow Matti Sulanto, Peter Forsgard and Robin wong. they all think the 12 - 100 is great, but I want this DUAL IS....

Can you guys help me decide please?

Panasonic Lumix DC-G9
