Here’s their conclusion:

“Olympus continues to crank out stunning lenses. The 12-100mm f/4 IS Pro is yet another remarkable lens for their professional line of lenses. The Olympus Zuiko Pro family now has a smattering of primes as well as a trio of f/2.8 zooms, but now the 12-100mm squeezes into the lineup, aiming at those MFT photographers wanting “Pro” image quality, build quality and performance, but in an all-in-one package.

Optically, the 12-100mm f/4 IS Pro is excellent, with tack-sharp images across its entire zoom range, even wide-open — that’s a really tough feat, and often a point of compromise for other long-zoom interchangeable lenses of the “travel zoom” category. Other optical qualities are also top-notch, and the rugged build quality is classic “Zuiko Pro.” At around $1,300, however, the 12-100mm f/4 is a bit on the pricey side.

If you’re shooting with the Micro Four Thirds system and want a top-notch single lens setup, perhaps for traveling, hiking, or just keeping your camera bag’s weight at a minimum, the 12-100mm f/4 IS Pro is that lens. Its versatility and quality make it a winner for pretty much whatever you want to throw at it”.

Mt Take:

Well I have a 12-100mm f4 and I can tell you its a seriously good lens that offers the perfect focal range for a general purpose all-in-one travel zoom and here’s some images to prove it.
