Come on, I think he meant...

...if you had a micro 4/3 camera and lens today.

Granted, he still didn't give enough info to make a good choice but if it were me and I have any prior Olympus camera and kit lens, I'm picking up the E-M5 because I do think it's that much better than the older ones. If I have a newer model Panasonic, GH2, G3 or GX1, I'm keeping my camera and picking up the 12-35.

I picked up a body only E-M5 (originally wanted the 12-50 kit but I had the opportunity to get the body only and took it) so I'm going to go for the 12-35 as soon as it's available. Very much looking forward to that lens, hope it lives up to most peoples expectations.

which would you pick?

No offense, but its a stupid question.

If I didn't own any photographic equipment already, both would be a waste of money.

If I had a camera but no lens, the lens would probably be a better choice. Conversely, if I only owned a lens, I would probably get the body.

Without having a context, of what possibly meaning could this question have?

Here's an answer. I already own an E-M5, so for me, the 12-35 is a much better buy.
