I’ve decided to look at getting an E-PL5, the Panasonic 14-45mm and Panasonic 45-150mm lenses. After reading many reviews on the Internet and this forum, I think this system would be a perfect start.

It's a reasonable compromise. You can't really go much cheaper, those old Panasonics people mentioned are sold for cheap because they are garbage, the kit 14-42 is the worst normal zoom I've used among any system, the 45-200 is very poor at the long end. To go better than what you've chosen would require quite a lot of money. There is some good inexpensive adapted glass you can get if you are willing to manually focus, but then you would be better served by Sony as it provides focus peaking, which in my experience is essential.
