I recently got the PanaLeica 12-60 and had a chance to use it last evening for the first time. I came away impressed!

Build quality is quite good but not as solid feeling as the 12-40, weight seems to be better distributed for some reason even though it's about the same.

Stabilization in the body seems better than OIS, no scientific analysis done though.

Sharpness seems similar although the color rendition seems warmer which I like, to me the Oly is sort of sterile (just my opinion!)

BTW, it was nice to shoot something other than wildlife/birds for a change!

Here are some samples:

This is definitely a very refreshing change, Bob! You should check out the Huntington Beach Pier. I shot this at sunset with my Sony A7R II at 24mm with the in-camera Sony smooth water app - 256 images blended into one. This was back in April and I have not used the Sony since!
