And the compact nature of the 50-200 is great as well off course.

I would hardly call it a compact lens, even though it is of high quality.  If I were interested in a compact micro four thirds camera, my first choice would be the zoom lenses made for that format.  Two already buy Panasonic and more expected from Olympus.  Unless you get a spectacular deal on these lenses, that changes the picture.  I have both.  And might consider buying a small camera that can focus well with both of them.  But first application would be with a standard size 4/3 camera which these lenses were made for.  You won't know unless you get to handle the expected model and the lenses.  Does sound like a cart before horse situation.  Just wait a couple months.  Sit tight.
