Re: 9-18 for me!

Perhaps, but I agree with dddesign. The 9-18 rarely leaves my LX7 and while I would like the extra 2mm at the wide end, 28mm equivalent is too wide for me as a general purpose walk-around lens.

The beauty for me of the micro four thirds system is that it is perfectly sized to allow for two (or three) camera+lens combos being carried at once.  For the mountains, I have the 7-14 on the GH2 (which gives it an extra kick with multi-AR settings), and either the 14-45 or the 45-175 on the EM5.  I agree that for a "walkaround," I would much prefer a 12-XX f2.8
