For travel I now mostly use the 14-42X and 9-18.

I tend to travel light (carry-on only and that isn't much nowadays). I recently got the pancake zoom 14-42X and I am pleasantly surprised by it. My copy is pretty sharp, and not as prone to PF as I feared it would be. I also carry the 9-18 which is small and is actually my most used lens as I am a wide angle shooter. I only carry a long lens when not traveling that light.

My main reason for moving to the m43 format was to get a much smaller and lighter package than I had before. This setup gives me that. I like the 14-42X on my E-M5 better than that 12-50 which isn't optically bad at all and has good macro, but it is as large as my 9-18 and 14-42X combined.
