All good, but be aware of one thing

Therse's no "bad" m4/3 lenses. They are all good to excellent.

But, IMHO, Olympus lenses work best with Olympus bodies and Panasonic lenses work best with Panasonic bodies.

Yes, they have compatible mounts of course, AF works on both brands, etc.

But there's one thing to know if you don't want to have bad surprises :

Olympus bodies don't correct CA, and Panasonic lens are prone to CA.

If you are a RAW shooter, you can correct CA in LR or another software without too much hassle.

If you shoot JPEG most of the time, it's more of a concern.

In the end, it all depends on your CA tolerence

You can do a search in this forum, you'll find a lot on this subject.
