Just FYI - I'm still trying to get my hands on those two lenses but as of now they are not available here in Oz.

Odd. I know the 12-60 was available in germany and the 12-100 has been for sale in USA for a while. On the other hand I clicked on this thread because I thought you were going to present some comparisons - bait and switch ?

I am simply receiving inquiries and this is one channel for providing the info that the delay has external causes.

Bait and switch of what?

I can't wait till you have the reviews done. These zooms may win me over to get into mFT, pending your results.

My "usual" dealers mention an ETA of "end of march" but so far ...

Ok Ok. It was a small joke. Sorry it was taken so seriously. And yes I look forward to the reviews. The initial reviews i've seen show both lenses to be quite nice.

Hopefully you get your hands on that Pana 12-60mm and reviewed before the end of May. Need to be thinking about an upgrade for my current travel lens the 14-150mm v2 soon after that.

 

The Oly 12-40mm is too short and the Oly 12-100mm, while it looks to have amazing IQ and focal range, is too big and heavy for my purposes - the combined size and weight of lens would be more than the Fuji XT1 and 18-135 travel combo that I had before I moved to MFT to for its size and weight advantages.

There are a few on ebay but that's an emergency choice really.
