Panny 12-35/2.8 versus Oly 12-40/2.8

Hi there, I have been looking at these two lenses lately, both very impressive and both rated very closely, as per this report here. I cannot find any other comparison reviews of people who have actually used both. As a GH2/GH3 user I am wondering if there is any disadvantage in going with the Oly; it weighs a good three ounces  more than the Panny, with more fancy lens elements, but don't know if it makes it necessarily superior to the Panny. It certainly 'feels' like a better lens and happens to be much cheaper. Anyone  had experience with both?

      Panasonic GH5

      4 batteries,
      charger,
      strap,
      Freetril 128gb V60 card

      Great condition, purchased used on ebay. No imperfections in the glass. The auto focus piece was removed to do a manual aperture mod. Never got around to doing the mod, but never put the auto focus board back in as I never use auto focus on the sigma. Comes with a Lens Turbo II Nikon to m43 speedbooster, also in great condition. This allows adjustment of the aperture.

      Purchased used but was in flawless condition and still is. Nice fast little auto focus lens.

      Just bought this little guy, perfect condition.



      email me for the quickest response you can try calling my home phone but I am not around a lot.

      I am open to offers but the prices are pretty solid. If you are in the Detroit area I am open to meeting in person and exchanging.

      Open to trades for a Fuji Xt2 or XH1. Also would be open to Fuji lenses. If you want the entire bundle I could give you a deal.
