    Well, after quite a few weeks of checking reviews and videos on the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8, finally ordered it, and it should be here on Monday,:)

    Might have to starve for a few weeks in order to pay for it,;) but I think worth every penny, Thanks everyone for your input, which helped me in deciding to buy it.

    Very nice,all the lenses for Panasonic and Olympus feel nice but like the Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 and the 100-400 the Olympus pro lenses will feel nicer.
