Define better and just maybe then you will get an answer.

That's always the problem when comparing lenses with different focal lengths. Both 12-32 and 14-42 are useful ranges but for some people having 12 at the wide end is more important and for some having more at the long end is more important. For some the operation through a ring versus a lever is the deciding factor. For others the availability of the X-Cap for the 14-42X (from freemod) is more important. For some the small size difference (12-32 is smaller) is important. For many the sharpness is important but there copy variation is probably greater than model variation.

So the one that fits YOUR priorities is the best FOR YOU.

BTW: I am a happy 14-42X user.
