There is a 14-54 f/2.8-3.5 zoom lens for classic Four Thirds that is weather sealed and very sharp, and will focus moderately quickly on m4/3. It's not small, but it's relatively cheap; I got a second-hand one for $250.

You can get the weathersealed adapter (MMF-3?) and use it.

Note, continuous focusing is not supported using classic 4/3rds lenses with the Olympus MMF-3/MMF-2 or Panasonic DMW-MA-1 adapters.  Normal S-AF focusing is rather slow compared to the native m.43 lenses, though you do gain about a stop of light.
