Which zoom lenses do people like for travel?  I know the 12-40/2.8 is highly lauded but I'm not sure I want to plunk down $1000 for my first lens if I buy a m4/3 camera.  Are the 14-140 and 14-150 lenses good (I ask as I'm leery of 10:1 superzooms).  If yes, what is best to pair for indoor-oriented shots?  Many thanks in advance.

Two years ago I carried an E-P3, 12mm f2, 25mm f1.4 and 45mm f1.8 to Paris. Today I would sort-of mimic that outfit by simply taking the E-M1 and 12-40 and never have to change a lens.

OR, being the dual Micro system owner I am today I might instead take the GX7, 7-14mm f4, 12-35mm f2.8 and 35-100mm f2.8. A great selling point of this outfit, it fits with room for other stuff in the same Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag I carried in Paris with the Pen and the three primes.
