Would you get the Pany 14mm or WEATHERPROOF Olympus 12-50mm to cover the wide end?

While the Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 is not weatherprotected, it is a very solid construction with no moving parts externally. There is internal focus, and no extending segments. Given the low price, I would suggest that you could risk using it in slightly bad weather, even if there is some risk to the equipment.

Note, though, that the lens does not have any rubber sealing towards the camera body, so there might be more risk to the camera as well, as compared to using a weather protected lens.

The 12-50mm lens is slim, but very long. So it does take quite a bit of space.
