I'd buy the kit and, if you want a telephoto zoom, the Olympus 40-150.  Shoot with these for a while.  If you're happy, great.  If you notice a specific problem with either lens (e.g., not fast enough, not wide enough), then see if there's another lens that solves the problem.

As others have noted, the kit lens is cheap and the 40-150 is not very expensive.  I wouldn't recommend spending more initially (unless there's some fabulous promotion that won't be available later). You can always get another lens.
