You have basially two options:

The Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8, which costs $1300.

The Olympus 14-54 f/2.8-3.5 II, which costs $600. It's a lot bigger and heavier. It requires a 4/3-m4/3 adapter, but my usage of this lens has shown it to focus just as fast--and faster in a lot of conditions--on my Micro Four Thirds cameras than it did on comparably priced Four Thirds DSLRs. The only things it can't do are silent AF for video, and C-AF. It will focus a lot faster than your Leica 14-50.
