I opted for the 14-42 because of nearly identical optical performance with the 12-50 in their common zoom range and $200 cheaper. I would have accepted the much larger size of the 12-50 lens and even a higher price if it was an optically excellent lens. I just didn't want to pay the price in size, weight, and cost for a mediocre lens.

I also had the idea that I could get the 12-50 for $300 in a few months on ebay if I later wanted one.

Well, its a few months later and you can get a 12-50 new on ebay for $250.  I still don't want it.  (Now have the Panasonic 12-35)
