I'm sure you will enjoy your choices. You probably know the 12-50 does do macro (not sure if it can do 1:1 magnification though). Check out some results on the native lens showcase wing of the site: https://www.mu-43.com/threads/olympus-12-50mm-f-3-5-6-3-ez.24326/page-68 I think it has fairly close focusing capabilities. I've tossed the idea around over the years myself, but just don't get into macro enough.
My box of fun arrived today! I’ve been spending the evening getting to know this little gem of a camera and look forward to getting out this weekend with it (if not before). In addition to the 12-50 and 40-150, I also added the Panasonic 25/1.7.

Was going to say the same thing. Unless you are getting an Oly with PDAF, or you just only love Oly lenses, the I’d angle to the g85. Great Ergonomics and controls, fantastic view finder, very good I’ll put.
