Ok, so in your view, there is nothing that takes a place in IQ between the 14 - 42 and the 12 - 35? Two suggestions that have come up are the 14 - 45 original pana kit lens and the newer 12 - 50 from Oly. Do you think there is an improvement for these two options?

Thanks again,

I own the 12-50 and the 14-42mm II is superior. I prefer to lose the 12mm and go with 14mm for a significant jump in image quality. I own the 12-50mm for rainy days, otherwise it never comes out.

Hmm, i currently own a 14-42I and a14-42II, my husband has another 14-42II. None of them is better than or even close to my copy of the 12-50. I mentioned the variation of quality in different copies of the kit lenses. Even my husband prefers to use my 14-150 to his 14-42 but in the end as mentioned above it all comes down to  being lucky and having a good copy.
