- The relative disappointment: Panaleica 14-50mm 2.8-3.5. A great lens optically, and maybe one of the best looking lenses to put on a 4/3 camera. Doesn't extend as much when zooming as a 14-54mm or worse - 12-60mm.

Yes, those are all true.

But it simply doesn't give anything over an inexpensive, weather sealed 14-54mm.

It doesn't give anything to you, because you don't have an early Oly body without IBIS.  If you had an E1 or E500 with those Kodak sensors (or an L1) you'd be singing a different tune.  Quite a few people here use the Vario-Elmarit on those cameras.
