You may want to consider Samsung, who have come out with the first 16-50 f2.0-2.8 zoom, currently the fastest standard zoom of any MILC available. Or wait for Fuji's f2.8 zoom, which is bound to be great.

Don't be shocked when you see the price tags and size and weight of those things though!

The Fuji tempts me, however, the XE1 kit and lens is looking at around $1000 local delivered in Australia with local warranty. It's f/2.8, which is useful but then you look at the price of a decent zoom lens to go with it and it's $800 on top of that again if you want the 55-200 f/3.5-f/4.8. That's the price you pay if you want a kit that small I guess.
