Do you think 14 f/2.5 is still useful if I'm going to buy the new 14-42 X Pancake?

Depends if size is a factor or not. If not, the Power IS on the new pancake will likely compensate for the missing stop of light. DOF is usually irrelevant at this sensor size; you do give up the ability to freeze action at lower light but think of all the zoom you'd get in return!
