As a portrait lens for people — at least for head and shoulders — 12mm is way too close.

I can see it being very useful as a pocketable package, with the E-PL5. I'm amazed how big the E-M1 and 12-40 are, compared to the E-PL5 with 14-42.

I'm certainly going to keep my PL5, as it's a capable shooter in its own right — and more appropriate  for social outings, for example.
