Re: Preferred travel zoom for m4/3?

The 14-140 was the original reason I switched to m4/3 (only reasonable 10x zoom on any platform at the time). I think it's great for what it is. It's not a fast lens though, so it depends what kind of indoor shooting you aspire to. I'm basically a landscape/wildlife/macro shooter, but I find the lens fine for casual portraits and events, though not optimal.

In a smaller package, the 14-42 X PZ is very sharp and flare free, though also slow. The newish Oly version with a zoom ring instead of a switch might be more ergonomically friendly, though I haven't tried it.
