Great kit and less than $1000:

EPL-5 with 14-42 $550

Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 $175

Olympus 40-150mm $150

That is $875.  If you get the epl5 used you can save $100.  Take that savings and get the 45mm f/1.8 and you are set.

You would have from 28-300 covered and two primes.  I dont think you can do better in any other system.

Heck you could buy the epl5 without the kit lens.  Get the olympus 9-18 for $500 and the 45mm and be covered for 90% of shooting you would ever need and still be less than $1250.

The better lenses are going to cost more but that is the case in every system.  $1200 for the 35-100 and $1100 for the 12-35 are significantly cheaper than the 24-70 and 70-200 versions for full frame cameras.
