I have all three lenses, and most everything has already been said. The only thing I would caution you about is the focus action of the 12-50 in manual mode. It is very numb, and feels like you are grinding the motor when you do so. It annoys me enough that I do not use it as my everyday lens.

That being said, I do not regret the purchase. It is sharp enough, weather-sealed, has motorized zoom for video, and does a decent job with macro. Therefore, it has earned a spot in my arsenal.
