Possible travel kit options, opinion sought...

Trying to wade through my systems and come up with a reasonable travel kit in m43.

Ive taken my last trip lugging a Nikon D3/D3x and lenses-- so Ive narrowed it down to two possible kits, both based on the Olympus pen system, which I already have, just need to add a few pieces.

Option 1:

Pen E-P3 (Im assuming I will place my order tomorrow-- already have the E-p2 and VF2)
Panasonic 7-14mm
Olympus 14-150mm
Panasonic 20mm f1.7
Olympus 45mm f1.8 (also will be ordered)
(and possibly, Panasonic 14mm f2.5)

Probable cost to build this system, based on what I already have: $1100-1400

Option 2:

E-P3 and E-P2
Panasonic 7-14mm
Olympus 14-150mm
Panasonic 14mm f2.5
Panasonic 25mm f1.4
Olympus 45mm f1.8

Probable cost to build: 1800.00

Weight is an issue, and I realize both of these kits could be pared down when optimal/necessary.
Any thoughts appreciated.
