Just because it's not made by Olympus/Panasonic doesn't mean it's inferior..and there is a difference in usefulness to many compared to the 14, because of a less wide focal length. (I may pick up a 14 myself, but find the kit lens pretty sharp at 14 - a lot less so at 42 - yet the size of the 14 Panny is nice and have seen some nice shots with it...cheap on Ebay too)

It's not that its made by Panasonic, its that the 14mm as a more useful focal length, is significantly smaller, ever so slightly faster, and can be had for about the same price. And in a set of lenses:

14mm
30mm
45-200mm

sounds better to me than:

19mm
30mm
45-200mm

For the same amount of money, I'd rather have a nice wide angle.
