You want a 14-42mm IIR

That's the collapsing kit lens that Olympus sells with its new cameras. It's small and light. It weighs the same as the 20mm pancake. It won't be as sharp as the pancake, especially if used wide open. For outdoor photos, you don't need to shoot wide open. At the longest end, the kit lens is actually sharpest at f/9.0.

This lens will give you the same zoom range you are used to.


An E-PM2 with the 14mm pancake is the only m43 setup (or only one of a few) that will be pocketable. I think the E-M5 is too heavy to be pocketable, even with a pancake.
