My concern is its size ... I am going travelling, and have now, two 43 lenses : the 11-22, and the 50-200, and I suspect the 11-22 is a bit big - too cumbersome to drag around.

I have also the 12-50mm m43, the 25mm F/1.4 Lumix m43, and the 45mm F/1.8 m43.

Now ... that means that for low light, I'd need to buy the 12mm F/1.8, for the travel (plain, train, restaurant etc shots). And ... because its as small I think, as the tiny 45mm m43 Oly lens.

So, I am thinking, that maybe I should buy a 40-150mm m43? But ... I am not sure about tele shots. I use the 50-200mm for sailing shots ... its too big for this trip. Its really, too big for most things for me.

But, could I just take these lenses: 12mm m43 (maybe I won't buy it), 12-50mm m43, 25mm m43 and 45mm m43 Oly ... and also, get the 75mm? Its size is what worries me a bit ...

the 75 is actually shorter than 3.5 inches, very compact lens length-wise, shorter than 14-150, shorter than 12-50, and of course shorter than 40-150 (40-150 itself is longer than 14-150).   The weight is 300 grams.   It is slightly shorter than Panasonic 7-14 and weighs about the same.   Of course you cannot compare it to 45/1.8 which is tiny.
