<<<Yup, 12-60 isn't a long as 12-100. And occasionally, but not too often, I 
miss that coverage. OTOH, it's optically as good, so don't give anything away 

I am skeptical about the long end of the  12-200.  It has weather sealing but I 
wonder if you can put it under a deluge like the 12-100.  The sync IS with  
12-100 is just remarkable!!  Even at F4 the  lack of subject isolation ability 
of the 12-100 can be a pain though.  It is a tad sharper than the PL 12-60 at 
the long end as I recall.  

Here is a Marnie shot from Bhutan with the 12-100:


I had to use a Moose processing procedure to improve the bokeh.   Marnie wants 
the reach.   Moose's point about the macro ability of the 12-60 is well taken 
and it is clearly massively better at this from samples I've seen with the 
12-20  and I know first hand with  the 12-100.  The 12-100 did not like my 
Pentax achromatic diopter but may like the new
Siggie one Moose found.  The PL is smaller and a better hiking lens but I don't 
think nearly as weather proof.  I think it has dual IS with Panny bodies.  

They each have their place, but not sold on the 12-200, Mike
