What is your favorite walk-about (general purpose, vacation) lens for m4/3?

Background: I'm spoiled by the Olympus 12-60 zoom

It sure would be nice to have a native M4/3 version of the Oly 12-60mm of the same quality level!

Different lenses for different things. For walkabout I vacillate (and switch) between the Voigtländer 25mm, a Voightländer 35mm f1.4 (M mount) and a Voigtländer 75mm f2.5 Color Heliar (Leica screwmount). The 25mm I use most of the time, but the 35mm is a favorite for shooting portraits of people on the subway. It's small and inconspicuous, so I rest my GH2 on my pack and use the articulated LCD to focus. It's lots of fun!
