I don't have the 12-49 f2.8 (yet) so I can't do a direct comparision but here is a photo I shot with the 12-50 during our trip to Venice.

Look at original size and see the sharpness, the contrast, color rendering etc.

I shot this trip with the 12-50, the 45mm F1.8 and the 75mm f/1.8. For all the photos that were shot in good light, I can not see any difference unless I pixel peep at 100% and even then, the difference is very small.  I guetheir will be the same with the 12-40.Of course, for low light and narrower DOF requirements, there is an obvious difference.
