The 45-150mm is good quality and extremely compact (about the size of the 14-45). Maybe more tele than you need. Shoot at f/8 or f/11 for best all-around sharpness.

I have the 45-200 and it is huge. Softer at telephoto but decent sharpness overall.

I hear the 45-150 is much smaller and decent sharpness whereas the 45-175 is not as sharp.

35-100 is an expensive but fast lens that doesn't reach as far.'

Panasonic bodies are a bit more limited long range because of IS... I hear the Oly 40-150 is very nice.
