A lens of the highest quality and an exceptionally versatile lens whose versatility does not require much, if any, real compromise.
As I already owned the PRO 7-14, 12-40, 40-150, 75, and 300, I thought long and hard about what a PRO 12-100 would add. Convenience was the answer: a single lens covering most of the range of the 12-40 and 40-150 combination but without the awkward weight of the 40-150, which usually got left at home. It made sense to trade these last two for a single quality substitute. An economic sacrifice, to be sure, but made tolerable by Olympus's recent trade-in discounts. Yes,the 12-100 is f4.0 versus f2.8 of the other two; but the in-lens stabilization more than makes up for that. Plus the 300 with the 1.4x extender gives all the reach anyone would want. The kit will be perfect with the PRO 25.

Wonderful image stabilization!
Rented this lens over the weekend, and now I'm trying to find out how to afford it! Love the manual focus clutch. With the 14-150, I kept having to use the super control panel to switch from manual to auto focus. The in lens IS + Camera IS is excellent. It does a great job focusing from a moving vehicle. With other lenses, I get a blurry mess out the side window at 60 miles per hour. Longer exposures did reasonably well down to 1/4-second. Very little waiting for it to go back and forth searching for focus, like in cheaper lenses.

This lens is impressive!
I'm a pro photographer and I can testify that this lens is a keeper. I use the lens on an OM-D E-M1 and the 12-100mm focal range, along with dual IS make this my go to lens. No more trying to decide what to carry when you're exploring a new location. This lens is impressive!

I bought the 12-100 f/4 just yesterday and it is rapidly becoming my favorite lens. It is clear, sharp, and the 12-100 range (24-200mm in 35mm format) covers most of my shooting requirements. The combined in lens stabilization and in body stabilization in my OM-D E-M5 Mk II is astonishing, allowing hand held shots at 100mm using 1/4 second or even less. I have tried test shots down to 1 second with acceptable results. The lens is large, larger than I expected, but it is well balanced on the camera (I use a grip and the PBH). It does not creep when carrying the camera and lens on a strap and it really does not feel that heavy compared to the 12-40 f/2.8. It may still be too large for a tourist setting, but will try it anyway.
