I have the 14-54mm MK1 and like you I find it quite acceptable on the E-M1 but it struggles a bit in low light. Not as good as on the E30 but the E30 had 'cross' focus points  where as the E-M1 seems to have only horizontal PDAF points (pls correct me if I'm wrong), which means you will need to be careful where you place the focus point.

However  the optical quality of my 14-54mm is very good and whilst it's larger and heavier than most u4/3 lenses,  I use it a lot except when on long hikes.  The 11-22mm performs the same but I think it's really good for landscapes  and architecture shooting.

Nevertheless I have the 12-40mm on my radar for next year !
