need opinions on 12-50 vs panny 14-42
Jun 11, 2012

Currently I have possibility to get 12-50 for acceptable sum of money. So, I am thinking should I get it to use it on my Panasonic G2. I definitely like idea of wider 12mm vs 14mm and longer reach on the other side. Not to mention macro. But I loose stabilisation and it is 6.3 at long end. What about optical quality? I can see that 12-50 was recieved with mixed feelings - some love it, some hate it. But it seems to me almost everyone hate 14-42 from panny?
Opinons highly appreciated!
