The new 12-50 lens could have been a good lens despite its relative slowness, if it had been sharp wide open like all the best 4/3 zoom are and indeed the little Panasonic 14-45. But if these tests are representative I cannot see it being a hit for stills users.

I was optimistic that the 12-50 would be really sharp, but since that turned out wrong, it offers very little over the kit lens in a physically larger package. (Unless you want macro or 12mm, neither of which I desire that much.)
