Here's a post I made a month ago comparing the 14-42 v.2 to the 14-45, in response to a request from someone . . .

I think the reported image quality, small size, and 12mm wide end of the 12-32 make that lens an appealing option, if you can forego some reach on the long end.

Yes I was originally choosing between those two lenses for my standard zoom, but I only recently noticed the 12-32mm. The slightly wider angle is appealing as it would probably be wide enough for me not to buy a proper wide-angle lens. I do not need the extra reach on the long end, as I will eventually have the 45mm 1.8 to cover that focal length.
