It would probably be more helpful if you let us know what kind of lenses you are interested in, or what kind of budget you are working with.

Assuming you're just getting started, I'd get the kit lens. If you want a decent zoom, the 40-150 is nice for the price. If you want a nice low light lens, get a prime like the Panasonic 20mm 1.7. If you want to do portraits, get the 45mm 1.8.

All these lenses run about $200 - $400, and can produce great results.

I'd agree though, if you just want a list of every lens and what's good or bad, maybe keep looking at the review sites like slr gear. Maybe there is a site out there with a chart ranking each of the lenses that would give you what you want.
