I cringe a little when I read 'which is the sharpest'. There is so much more to a lens, even to IQ, than just sharpness.

Anyway, of the two I chose the 12~50 because of the range. It was also dirt cheap with the OMD. It lacks a fast aperture but I'm happy with the IQ and focissing. It will be a useful 'one lens' solution when I need the convenience.
