I will soon be purchasing an Olympus Om-D Em-5 and have the choice of a twin lens kit (MFT 14-42mm II R + MFT 40-150mm R Lens) or single (12-50mm) for approximately the same price.

I will be travelling through Asia this year and am unsure as to what is the best option for me. Any help offered would be greatly appreciated.

I am particularly interested in scenery shots. I will look to get a zoom lens when I return however as I'd love to take shots of my soccer team.



I think I would prefer to have the 2 lens kit. It offers the greatest range of focal length.   And those Olympus kit lenses are pretty decent lenses.

I'm not sure what  you mean by 'buying a zoom lens' when you return from your trip, both options you list contain zoom lenses.
