Need Cisco Switch Recommendation

I have a cisco 4912 (fiber only) and a cisco 3560 -48pt (w/4spf ports) connecting 8 different campus location via fiber and several servers using copper on the 3560.
Downstream from these switches are several more 3560's and a few 2984G's.

I would like a suggestion for a cisco layer 2 switch that I can use to collapse the 4912 and 3560 fiber connection into.  The 4912 has the large Fiber Connectors and the 3560 has the smaller gbic (sfp) connectors.  I would like to use ALL SFP connectors AND have some copper ports as well.  Does Cisco make a switch that has 12 SFP/copper ports?  We run single mode fiber to most locations and also have some multi-mode so I would need to mix and match both types of gbics.

Thansk for any help someone can lend!
