Re: Has the 12-100 replaced your 12-40 / 12-35?

The f4 is not really an advantage in low lights. The weight is another. I had it for a holiday trip and I do not really find it comfortable to carry on a long time. That inclusion of in lens IS and the on/off switch is another pain in the ass. I found out that I cannot switch off from the SCP as with other lenses (panny 42.5). And when it's OFF, I cannot enable the in body IS from the SCP either. So it's sort of a pain that I have to remember that the IS switch is on the Lens.
IQ, if sufficient Light, even that 14-150mk2 is on par. insufficient light, that 40-150 gives f2.8. So where does that put it?
It's a good travel lens if you don't already have that 14-150, panny 14-160.
If you have already got that 12-40/2.8, not really a must have.
