I'm not sure it is reasonable to expect a professional quality lens to go with a camera that Oly says isn't at the professional level.

You also have to remember that this is a kit lens. How many companies do you know of who put out professional grade kit lenses?

Then there is the issue of pricing the body + kit. The type of lens you want would probably need to add $500-$800 to the price of the kit.

When the E-3 was launched, I am sure that the 12-60 was considered its 'kit lens'.
