Anybody please tell me where to find a test review of the Olympus 12-50/3.5-6.3.
Ordered an Olympus OM D E-M5 and must decide if getting it with the 14-42 or the 12-50.

My impression about this lens after reading some review:

1. IQ is not very impressive but still good (the Pana 14-45mm definitely better IQ wise);

2. The maximum aperture 6.3 at the long end is too small;

3. The physical size is too long (about 1/3 longer than the pana 14-45mm);

4. An attractive feature of this lens seems to be its macro ability: maximum mag.=0.72 at macro mode, 0.36 at normal mode.
