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

I find that great that the 12-100 is there are times when the more compact 12-40 makes more sense particularly on a Pen-F (or an E-M5 MkII).
Also a sharp corner to corner f/2.8 is nice on occasions too. Having said that I can understand why others might have a different view.
Those are precisely the reasons I have held on to my 12-40 after getting the 12-100, even though the 12-100 is being used almost exclusively.

The 12-40 is still a beautiful, compact and sharp lens, but it could do with just a little more reach. I still find myself using it for indoor events.
