Panasonic 35-100mm tested at DxOmark.

DxOmark (Click here) posted and wrote that this is “certainly the best (MFT) kit available based around zoom lenses“.
The 12-35 and 35-100mm basically have the same kind of quality. And it’s rumored that Olympus will launch a f/2.8 zoom with even better image quality. It’s likely going to be announced along the new OMD in September. But I still need to get a confirmation form trusted sources about that…
