Micro 4/3 lens upgrade

I bought a Panasonic G3 about two years ago with the two kit zooms 12-42 and 45-200.

I wish to expand my wide angle facility and add a macro lens.

My thoughts are:-

Olympus 9-18

Pan/Leica 25

Pan/Leica 45


Pan 12-35

Pan/L 45

The 14-42 has not really given me a wow factor over my old Nikon Coolpix 8700. Improved image quality is an important factor.

Is the 12-35 zoom a significant improvement over the kit lens?

Is 12mm wide enough (in my 35mm days my widest lens was 20mm but not used much)?

How much better is the IQ of the 25mm lens compared to the 12-35?

How does the IQ of the 12-35 compare to the 9-18 ?

I look forward to hearing from you
