Which is better optically? I understand that one is wider and the other longer. I am looking for a light walk around lens to add to my collection for my EM1.

The Panasonic pancakes (12-32, 14-42 PZ) are both very sharp. Quite likely so is the Oly. My guess is that sample variation makes more difference than any inherent design differences ... so pick based on your preferred focal range and whether you like the idea of video friendly power zooming ...

From what I remember, the 14-42 PZ has a bad reputation hence why they went back to the drawing board with the 12-32.
