Lens for Lumix G5: 14-42 vs 14-45 vs 14-42pz vs ?

I've been in the market for a new camera and am close to purchasing a Lumix G5.  I've heard a lot of criticism of the quality of both the standard 14-42 lens and the pancake 14-42 lens.  I'm interested in the older 14-45 lens but unfortunately, this raises the price on the things quite a bit.  The G5 is available with the 14-42 lens for ~500 but the 14-45 lens alone seems to sell for $300-ish (less on ebay).  Not sure it's worth it.  Any thoughts??  Thanks!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5
