I'm buying the GH3. Having used APS-C for forever, I need some lens recommendations, primarily for travel, so it needs to be light and minimal.

I'm thinking about:

Ultrawide - but I need one that can take a variable ND filter. How can this be accomplished with m4/3?

Superzoom - Panasonic 14-140mm f/4.0-5.8 ASPH./MEGA O.I.S. Lumix G Vario HD

Prime - Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Aspheric G- Series Pancake Lens (46mm)

Any input?

The only UWA lens that takes filters for the M43 system is the Olympus 9-18mm(18-36mm FF equiv or 12-24mm APS-C equiv).

The Panasonic 7-14 is wider but like the Sigma 8-16mm and 12-24mm, it has a non-removable lens hood and can't take thread mount filters.
