Is the 12-40 worth the upgrade from 12-50 kit?
8 months ago

The kit is okay enough for me for casual snaps.  But I DO like a very high quality wide angle.  I've already read all the threads comparing the 12-35 and 12-40 and the pros/cons lead me to the 12-40.  I had the 12/2.0 for a few days and loved it but then I saw the initial rumors of the 12-40/2.8 coming down the pipes, so I returned the 12/2.  My intention was to see if reviewers rated the 12mm end of the 12-40 close to the 12/2.

So before I dump the 12-50 at whatever price it takes (half price-ish) for the 12-40 I'm wondering if the hit is worth it.
