What I've seen of the M43 lenses

The kit lenses are good in decent light, and very small. However, like F3.5+ lenses on most bodies, they can be a bit soft in less than optimal light, something that high ISO just doesn't overcome. 12-50 really isn't a bad lens, and it's weathersealed, a bonus if you've ever run afoul of a non sealed camera and water. 40-150 is surprisingly good for the price, and very small. I do have the 14-150... it's not a bad lens considering the range, but a bit soft on the long end.

I have the 45 1.8, it's a keeper. Very sharp, very fast focusing, very small, and the price is right.

12 2.0... it was a bit pricey for me. I'm looking long and hard at the 17 1.8, have seen some terrific shots taken with it.

Another superb lens is the PL25 1.4. I have the larger 4/3 version that I kept from my Oly DSLR days, it is a portrait lens extraordinare, lovely renderings.
