The two lenses have very differrent purposes. What do you hope to shoot with it?

The 11-22 is a very fine WA lens. It accepts 72 mm filters for using ND filters in long exposures. It focuses very close for dramatic effects with subjects close to the viewfinder but it is not a macro due to the WA.

The 14-54 is has a longer range of focal length. 54 mm is a short tele on Olympus. It focuses very close for near macro work. 14 mm is a 28 mm equivalent which is a good working WA focal length for lots of scenic and landscape situations, but it is not nrealry as wide as 11 mm.
