All this talk about the 12-40mm, I just bought a used 12-50mm for $235

I've just given up on the 12-50.

The 10mm on the tele end just isn't enough to lust for. I have the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 macro, so I don't need the 12-50mm for macro. The 12-50 was just a stop gap measure for me, until something better came along. Well, the 12-40mm is incomparably better, and has the equivalent 12-50 macro capability at all focal lengths. Of course you pay dearly for the amazing 12-40mm IQ and luscious build quality, but I've lived for photography for too many years to spend the waning years of my life without a completely satisfying normal zoom.
