If you move from the 14-45 to the Olympus 12-50, you'll have a lens that adds weather sealing and does macro, but is not as sharp as your 14-45 and lacks IS on your Panny GH3 (making it effectively a slower lens than what you currently use). In your circumstance -- if you can afford it -- I would think the sharpness, micro-contrast, and stabilization of the Panny 12-35mm might be worth the additional $$$. You'll at least feel that you've moved to a better optic, rather than to one that may not be as good as your 14-45mm.
