    Here you go:

    I have been a bit too spoilt by the 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO to ever look seriously at this lens. However, I would be interested to see what users think of it.

        I think there were some hints in among all the teasers for the new stuff, but we all paid so much attention to the E-M1X and 150-400 that we didn't really clock this. I wasn't too surprised when it popped up on Oly's Faecesbook feed this morning.

              I would say it's ideal for anything but landscape, street and portraits.

                I have been pondering about the 14-150mm for some time as a replacement for my 40-150mm. This 12-200mm looks much better on paper for my needs when I want a one lens kit.

                  It has been on the Rumors site for a couple of weeks. Maybe the only lens that you will ever need................

                    The 12-100 is 8.33X zoom.

                    12-200 is 16.66X zoom....Nah, something has to be scarfed.

                    Back in the day, anything above 4X zoom was considered c**P, but I guess things have moved on a bit since then.

                      It doesn't seem to have the inbuilt lens stabilisation like the 12-100. So the in-body stabilisation is going to have its work cut out at 200mm.

                        As it does with the 75-300 with its longer reach but my M1ii copes very well. 200mm should not be a problem.
