OM-D EM-5 Plus What Gear (Lenses, Flashes, etc)?

Hi folks,

I've got an Olympus OM-D EM-5 (Black) with the 12-50mm kit lens on preorder. I'm really excited by the potential of this upcoming camera.

Now I need some help on the other stuff (lenses, flashes, etc).

So far this what I'm thinking:

  • FL-600R Flash

  • HLD-6 Battery Grip

  • Panasonic 100-300mm Lens

  • Panasonic PZ 14-42mm Pancake Lens

Are there Olympus lenses that would be better to go with over these Panasonics?

And while I think the 14-42mm Pancake will make a GREAT everyday use lens, I'm thinking I might also need a good prime.

I'll be taking all kinds of pictures (landscape, street scenes, people, etc). Is there anything else I'll need to pickup. I've already go a couple of tripods and cases.
