When I had a Pentax DSLR system I had up to 7-8 lenses. I then went down to around 5-6. Then I sold out of the Pentax system and got the OM-D and have 4 lenses that essentially cover everything I need.

Pana 7-14 f/4
Pana Leica 25 f/1.4
Oly 45 f/1.8
Oly 40-150 f/4-5.6 R

That's all I need. However as someone else said I could do with 2 lenses as-well ie. 12-35 f/2.8 and 35-100 f/2.8 would serve the majority of my needs. However, 100mm is a little on the short end and the 7-14 UWA is very useful so I like my current setup as is.
