I bought the 50-200 & 14-54 to matchup with my E-300 6-yrs ago. I still use them on the old camera, fantastic results and since 2007 both on the E-3. When I bought the E-3 I checked the 12-60 but did not see it better enough than the 14-54 for my usage.
The 14-54 V1 is an amazingly good lens that I recommend heartily.
As for the TCs it seems one really never hears of coupling them to the 14-54, Jim I am happy to hear you do. Recently I did put the EC-20 to my 14-54 on the E-3 and it is a very nice combination that I expect to use often.
