So...MFT bodies are so tiny...why care about zoom versatility when you can have a double body prime setup, have a backup for your body if it fails, and have fun shooting dual primes and being able to jump from wide-tele anyways, not to mention better versatility in jumping from close subject shooting to sharper infinity focus as well as better flare and CA, etc.

Or change the lens. The primes are so far pretty small - although the Pana/Leica 25mm isn't really small. I don't know how big the Olympus 75mm is though.

The curious thing with the Olympus 43 lenses, is that there were few faster aperture ones of those. The only issue with m43 now, is depth of field ... and a few well positioned really fast primes is the only way to get around that.
