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?

The 12-32 seems to be the best now.

The Panny 14-42 II gets great reviews as well, and the 14-42 X is considered very sharp. Any of these will not suck.

No idea about the Oly lenses, but the 14-42 IIR seems to get decent reviews ... sells really cheap though. I just split an E-PM2 kit and it only sold at $79usd ...
