Ok, question...Is it much better than the 14 - 42?...I mean, my kit lens when I take a scene in general it is more or less Ok, but for ambiance portraits which I like when traveling it is very bad, resolution for peoples in scenes is lacking a lot...Is the 12 - 50 better?

No, it is not better. Just more versatile than the 14-42.

The only MFT kit zoom lens that excels, is the Panny 14-45. Otherwise you should look into the 14-54 II (a bit slower focusing), or the 12-60 (very slow focusing).

I just bought a used 12-60, and in manual focusing mode, it's a great lens. Hoping for an upcoming E-x body to do it justice.
