The 14-140 mm for ease of use ,sharp enough at all focal lengths ,and a good range ,if you could only own one lens in the m43 this would be the one ,or maybe the Nocticron but that lens is really all about luxury exotic glass,.i actually don't own either but own the two panasonic 12-35 -35-100mm f2.8 lenses and there pretty good and weather sealed ,if you need it .

It depends on the concert, really. At 90% of the concerts I go to, f/3.5-5.6 borders on being useless, with only f/3.5 truly useful for video. If it's a well lit and large venue, though, it'd definitely be enough. Otherwise, I'd go for one of the f/2.8 zooms, probably the 12-35. You can always use extra tele conversion for more reach.
