What he said about the 14mm

BUT...the Zuiko 12mm price is a killer for some. Your m4/3 kit appears to be a secondary system to your FF, so other considerations may come into play. If ultimate image quality is not your m4/3 goal, but, rather, very good quality, consider the 9-18mm for flexibility or the 14mm for small size and speed. The 14mm is a very good lens (I'm surprised that you think it's no better than a kit zoom) and a perfect complement to the 20mm.

I bought an OM-D to compliment my Nikon kit so size was the first consideration. The 14mm is ridiculously small and light and produces excellent images. It is sharp as one would ever need in the centre from f/2.5 and I have found that, by f/4, it is good all the way out to the corners. This lens gets a bad rap. Given the price -- $170 new for me -- it's a great lens.
