Quote:I find the 12-100 way too bulky.Unfortunately while the 12-60 F2.8-4 may just be a little smaller on the outside (98.5mm x 79.5mm), it's actually a little heavier at 575 g.... so forget about that aspect. Plus usually the brightness advantage disappears quickly and would only be fully available at the less useful wide angle side which for all intents and purposes makes it a f4 lens as well.
The 12-60 is probably going to be significantly smaller while being brighter.
Plus, if you really need reach 100mm won't cut it anyway.
Personally, I'd go with the 12-60 (on paper at least).
It will come down to optics for me because I don't see much else being different (incl. price)
