I thought I would find my favorite and send the loser on its way. But no, even 
after extensive use of both in Bhutan, trading back and forth with MikeG, I 
still don't have a clear <<<winner.

testing, just using.

Must say have to thank Moose again as a majority of our keepers were with one 
of those two lenses.  Marnie preferred the 12-100 for the extra reach despite 
the much larger size.  The 
sync IS is crazy good  with the Z. 12-100 on the E-M1-II and one can even  blur 
water hand held if desired. She got a bunch of nice shots that I did or would 
have missed for various reasons.   The PL max mag is on the long end and the 
size makes it a nicer package so it is a difficult choice.
Had a bit of trouble with subject isolation  with either at times and had to 
resort to PP tricks learned from Moose tutorials to fix that.

Beneficiary of Moose GAS, Mike
