I disagree with Moses's strategy of using the 12-50 in Macro Port 65, which doesn't allow use of the lens' built in macro mode.  This is a really compelling advantage, depicted here:

It probably isn't the highest quality lens available, but I don't know of any lens on any other format that gives the underwater photographer this range from almost wide angle to almost macro, then with the flip of a switch pretty serious macro.  For someone looking for flexibility on a dive this is hard to beat.

I think 12-50 is amazingly versatile, especially in the Nauticam port where you can access the macro mode.  

 

My kit for micro four thirds would be:

 

Panasonic 8mm Fisheye for Close Focus Wide Angle

Panasonic 7-14 for Pelagics, Skittish Wide Angle

Olympus 12-50, Midrange and Macro

Olympus 60mm, Real Macro

 

I'd also carry Olympus 12mm /2 and 12-40 for topside shooting, but am not sure that I'd use them underwater.

The latest update I have from Zeiss here is that 50mm should start shipping next week, but in limited quantities.

This housing was unmodifiied.  I expect something to take care of the mode dial lock interference will be released at some point, but we are busy diving the camera now as is.
