I have the 14-42IIR, the 12-32mm and the 14-45mm. The 12-32 is nice and compact, but optically I don't find it any better than the 14-42. Not bad, not great. Between those two, the question would be your preference of a little wider or a little more reach.

My copy of the 14-45 gives me better pictures than either of the other two and is the one I'm going to hold on to until I can swing upgrading to the 12-40.

So, the 14-45mm has better IQ? Or at least your copy does?

Also, what camera do you use? The 12-32mm does not have a manual focus ring with the manual focusing done through the touch screen on the GM1. I have a G5, and I have no idea when, or even if, there will be a new firmware update to use the manual focusing feature for this lens.
