Your claim that the 14-45mm doesn't "work so great on [your] OM body" totally bewilders me and is contrary to my own experience: the 14-45mm is my favorite lens on the OMD, producing fabulous images. It's just as good on the OMD as it was on the G1, GX1, and G3 I've owned. Further, its OIS (which can be turned on and off with an external switch) makes it equally valuable on the PM series camera, which lack the great IBIS of the OMD.

So, basically, I have no idea what you're complaining about.

I agree... my 14-45mm works just as well on my E-M5 as it did on my GF1. Same for the 45-200mm. Even the 20mm f/1.7 works fantastic and practically lives on my E-M5. No it won't autofocus as quickly as the other lenses, but it was slower to AF on the GF1 as well.

I don't have much desire for a standard f/2.8 zoom since I have primes covering this range, but I would love to add the Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 to my kit.
