If you don't have the 12-60 SWD then the 14-54 version 2 is a much better option for you. It will focus faster. And it's much cheaper and smaller and will balance better with the EM5 with grip combo.

That would be my advice as well. The 14-54 II will focus faster than the 12-60 (even if it won't focus as fast as the kit lens which is practically instant) and it is still weather-sealed and excellent quality.

Personally, if you are using 4/3rds lenses, I prefer to use a grip with the camera. It's not necessary, but the OM-D is surprisingly small, and with dSLR-sized lenses I find it's nice to have a bit more leverage.
