if you are willing to stitch

What would you recommend for a lightweight kit in that focal range? I'm impressed by the Panasonic 20mm F/1.7 right off the bat, I can see it staying on the camera 85% of the time.

Up-left, up-right, down-left, down-right will get you about 25mm worth FF equivalent after a 4-shot stitch (20mm equivalent in an ideal "no-overlap" stitch scenario).  If you are good with this approach, you can probably manage with the 20/1.7 for all your "25-50" equivalent needs.  For the telephoto range, the 45-175x gets my highest recommendation.  90-350mm equiv, yet the thing is ridiculously small and lightweight, about the same size as the 12-50 in fact!
