4/3 rumors posted a rumor today of a 12-100f4 pro lens being released this fall. One of the things I really liked about the original 4/3 system was the 12-60. While constant f4 is a bit slower if the lens has good optical quality @ f4 this might be a really nice lens. Other than bokeh most of the pro lenses have been pretty decent so far. If they can make this the same size as the 12-40f2.8 (concern it might be a bit on the long end) it would be pretty nifty edition to system as a walk around/travel lens.
Any comments/thoughts ?
A 24-200mm f8 FF equivalent with a Pro price tag?
Maybe but it would probably be a more useful lens then a lot of the crap available for canon.
12-100mm f/4 sounds good to me - assuming that the size and quality is right (reads better than those 14-150mm lenses).
Take that plus a UW and a fast prime and you got a compact versatile setup.
I have used a 24-200 as a travel lens on 5D and that was quite awesome, for travelling lightweight I found this is an ideal setup

If it's small and good, that could be a nice traveling lens. Pair it with a fast normal lens (ideally a 20 or 25mm 1.2 or 1.4) and you've got an non-obtrusive yet competent 2-lens kit.
