of the Swift UVOT team report:

The Swift Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope (UVOT) observed the field of GRB 
050412 (Cummings et al., GCN 3237) starting at 05:45:40 UT on 12 April 
2005.  We find no evidence for a source in the 5 arcsecond radius XRT error 
circle (Tamburelli et al., GCN 3241) in the UVOT data.  The 3-sigma 
limiting magnitudes in a 3.5 arcsecond radius circular aperture is V = 19.1 
with a systematic uncertainty of 0.1 mag due to uncertainty in the 
preliminary flight photometric zero point.
