The 12-50 has been panned by members of this forum. Are you aware of some changes to this lens which would now make it desirable?

It's not super sharp, but it's OK and it's versatile. If, like me, you can put up with less than ultimate sharpness on a carry-round lens, it's good. Just have more lenses (or another system) for the occasions you want real quality.

I'm thinking of getting the 12 mm f2, which could be a sharper carry-round lens, but the versatility of a zoom starting at 12 mm makes the 12-50 (especially bundled with the OMD) really good value and a useful option.
