Default Is anyone using the 14-54 II on EM-5?

Is anyone using the four-thirds 14-54 II on your EM-5 regularly as a walkabout? I'm very tempted to buy this lens for its sharpness and sell the 12-50 kit lens. The biggest drawback, from what I can see, is the weight of the 14-54 lens plus the adapter.

interesting threads.

I have been having some serious thoughts about getting a fast zoom lens like the Panasonic 14-35mm f2.8 but seeing this and knowing already how the FT lenses focus on MFT and owning an adapter I'd seriously have to consider this lens as well for half the cost.

Greg in another thread mentioned Olympus said they would be working on a fast zoom so maybe more to choose from in the future as well, but I doubt it will be any where near the bargain price of the 14-54 II hmm
