I would be interested in the responses also. I had the 12-50 and sold it (planning on getting the 12-40) but ended up getting the Olympus Stylus 1, which I felt I would get more use out of. (And I still had the 14-42IIR to use on my EP5.) I have always felt (without actually trying out the combination) that the 12-40 might feel a bit over-balanced on the EP5, but now that I am planning on getting the EM10, my eyes keep getting attracted back to the 12-40 lens. Still don't know if I would use it enough to justify selling (and getting almost nothing for) the 14-42 and getting the 12-40.
