It won't be the ultimate walk around camera until they get a excellent walk around zoom lens. Neither X-mount or m4/3 have anything resembling the DA 18-135 WR or even the DA 17-70 (the Oly 12-50 has a terrible reputation).

I guess it depends on your idea of what constitutes a "walk around" camera/lens.  Personally, I find most all zooms to big and bulky for that purpose.  When I'm using my K-5, it's the DA40 or DA21.  On the X-E1 Fuji it's the XF35/1.4, or maybe the XF18/2.0.

That said, the XF18-55 zoom that Fuji makes is a very nice lens. I've been very impressed with it.
