It's weather sealed. It's wider (12mm vs 14mm is pretty noticeable). Faux macro function is nice. Electronic zoom is very nice for video. AF on the OM-D is very fast.

Reasons for the 14-42 are it's cheaper, it's smaller, and the small minimum focusing distance can still give you some nice close ups, though I think the 12-50 "macro" mode is a little better.

I have the 14-42 and almost passed on the 12-50. However, I'm glad I got it after all.
