I've also shot my fair amount of pretty good images with the 12-50mm (OK, good if you like my style - if not, they probably s*ck).

But in lesser light, the lens struggles and gasps for air.

Exactly my impression of the 12-50.

Usually not a problem for me, since we've rarely had a cloud in the sky for several years...but the lack of sharpness/resolution does become noticeable when the ambient contrast is lower.  Then I could use the 14-45 (but have to think about lack of weather sealing also).  I will get the 12-40 when I get the EM1 (or its successor).
