For normal shooting the 14-54/12-60 and the 50-200 gives you excellent coverage given a good body. Edd the 2X EC's for long telephoto and the EX25 for close up and you are about there.

The 12-60/50-200 are both SWD and are pretty quite on a 4/3 camera. Apparently not so quite on the current m4/3 cameras.

Oh yes and the other thing is the 12-60/50-200 SWD  are direct mechanical manual focus and not focus by wire which I prefer.
