Yes, for general walking around Marnie and I both prefer the MZ 12-100 F4.  The 
sync IS is amazing and as Moose mentioned the weather sealing is very good.  
The IBIS is so good on the OM-1 that the advantage of sync IS is less.  The 
lens is a bit too slow to allow subject separation except under some 
circumstances necessitating skilled PP.  The macro abilities of it are lousy 
but the Sigma AML 72-01 achromatic diopter meshes well with the optics.  I have 
never seen it so cheap!  I should get another.  Moose virtually put it in my 
hand with a link to it on sale but this price is crazy. No step up or down ring 
required either.

All that being said the max mag of the PL 12-60 at the long end is nice and the 
lens is small enough to fit in my long hiking pack so had to get one anyway.
