… Consider how many expensive lenses are absolutely needed, just to cover your basic needs?

If I do purchase the Olympus E-PL5, are there two additional (reasonably priced) lenses I can purchase (1 short/1 long) besides the kit lens that will give me approximately 17mm to 140/150mm range? If the answer is yes, will the total cost be less than $1000 for the entire system? Any help will be very much appreciated!

What are YOUR basic needs?  Do you really need long lenses, which are critical for wild life and may be sports?  Otherwise, a kit lens plus a fast prime for general photography in low light will do.  The Panasonic 20/1.7 is about $350.  You add more lenses over time as your needs grow.
