Both are good - the 12-50 is more versatile (it's decent macro lens and has power zoom (and manual zoom if you prefer) for video and it is wider and longer in reach). The 14-42 is more compact and looks more natural on a Pen body. Personally, I'd ignore looks and go for the 12-50, but that would be a slightly more expensive route and Pens are not normally sold with 12-50s as kits (the lens was really intended for the E-M5).
