I'm getting the EM10 body only and a couple of good primes.

But i will want a small zoom occasionally.

Is the consensus that the Pany 14-45 is the best optically?

I do not know whether 14-45 zoom is the best optically, but I do think that this lens represents the best value.

Other two competitors are 12-35 Pana, and 12-40 Oly lenses. If they are just a bit better than 14-45 in some areas, are you going to pay for this just abit? And, why do you want "best"? I'm not sure you can make any difference out from "the best"
