I have the new small Panasonic 14-42mm II (not the pancake) and very happy with it.
Sharp lens!

Yes! I got one for my GX1 and it's very good. Sharp, very fast focus, well built and quite compact.

The other option would be a 14-140mm or a 14-150mm. I got the 14-140mm as the kit lens with my GH2 and added the 20mm and 7-14mm. It's better than it's reputation, and yes it's a bit soft on the long end, but still quite a good lens.

What I'd love to see is a native 12-60mm on par with the Oly 4/3 version.
