That largely hits the fast lenses. The Panny 14 (not as fast) has a very good reputation for the money and there's the Oly 12 and the not yet available Pannasonic 12-35 f2.8 zoom that looks very promising. I think you (original poster) may like the 40-150 more than you think. It's a slow lens but it's very small (at least collapsed), very light, and real decent optically. IMO, it compares quite well with lenses like the Nikon 70-300 which is also slow but well regarded optically. If you got the 40-150 with the rebate as part of your E-M5 purchase, I think it's a fantastic value. I also find the focal length range very useful. I'd like to see something like the Zuiko 50-200 ported to native m43 mount but except for the maximum aperture the 40-150 is solid.
