Gear of choice for stiched mountain panorama's?


I am looking for a leightweight compact combo that delivers results that really stand out (and have that exceptional "wow" factor).

- High end compact versus epl5 or epm2 versus OMD?

-  kit lens versus 12/25/45/60 mm prime?

What  combo gives  the best possible stitched panorama?

What would be your choice when weight and bulk restrictions are most important?  At this moment i use an E420 with its kit lens.  This combo has to much bulk, but i like to use the viewfinder.

I expect to take only one lens to the mountains.  Personally i think epm2 + pl25 or OMD + pl25,  that would also be a great general purpose combo.  I would buy a cam with its kit lens and add 1 prime.

Thanks for your thoughts,
