Re: Lenses for the E-PM2?

I can't thank you all enough. It looks like I'll be purchasing the PEN E-PM2 on Friday, and I'm really excited about it. So here's my next question: anyone have strong feelings about lenses? I was going to just stick with the kit lens and buy a pancake lens for portability for the time being, but should I also purchase a longer/bigger zoom lens? If yes, thoughts about what brand?

You should not skip 40-150 $99 deal (in a package with the kit). From there, you will see what you need later. You may find wanting to go wider, or longer, or brighter at certain focal lengths, or wanting both 14-42 and 40-150 in one, or will be completely happy with what you have, and that will affect your further path.
