If you are interested in light weight and small size, I'd encourage you to consider the Panasonic 12-32mm. It's a great, tiny lens. You might want a zoom to go with it, though.

Yeah I picked up the 12-32mm and its perfect on the EM5, my wife uses it mostly while I have the 12-40 or primes on my EM1.

I would get the 12-32 or one of the 2.8 zooms (12-35 or 12-40), the regular kit lenses are pretty big and not really any better than the 12-32, most of them less wide as well. Only thing you really lose is the long end (which to me isn't a big deal in a kit lens, maybe to others, I would much rather have the wide end) and the weather sealing of the 12-50mm of course.
