I could not imagine the Panasonic 14-45 being anwhere nearly as fast. Optically, couldn't tell you anything more than, I'll bet the 12-50 is much, much sharper at both 12mm and 13mm ;).

FWIW the 14-45 is about the same speed as the 45/1.8. I'd be highly surprised if the 12-50 were any faster.

I was doubious about Olympus' claim the 12-50 was faster than the 12mm f2 as well, but it does seem to be. Of course, by the time the AF speed is that fast, it really doesn't matter.
