There were a few reported instances of the 12-40 lens, which has plastic construction, breaking in half.

That is indeed interesting, care to share the link where this is reported?

I have dropped my 12-40mm and it has not fallen in half. Anyhow the 12-40 lens is a well balanced lens that mates the E-M1 extremely well. The idea of incorporating more metal internal components would add much weight, and the overall portability of the lens will be compromised.

This thread is just bizarre and every pic I see is showing either over sharpening of the 12-40 EM1 combination or really bad examples of NEX, A7 pics.

No over sharpening required...

The sharpness on the Oly 12-40 easily rivals any of the Sony E-Mounts, and it's a zoom lens, like I said Oly makes PRO glass for sure...

Take note of the corner and edge performance on the MTF charts...it is eye opening....

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...
