I still love my 12-50
In reply to The Photo Ninja, Nov 4, 2013

It's  great lens.  I still plan on getting a 12-40 as soon as I can afford it, but the 12-50 is still a solid walk-around generalist lens.  I am looking forward to having something sharper on the long end, and faster throughout, but that doesn't keep me from using the 12-50 on a daily basis.

I find the 12-50 to be plenty weatherproof for me.  I have gotten it soaked in foul weather multiple times without any problems, including some distance wet in a trekking bag when I didn't realize water was getting in while hiking 10 miles in what was basically a hurricane.
