Gx85 - Walkaround lens + closeup

Hello all,

I am to buy something that fits in a jacket pocket and a lens that covers me for most scenarios. I like landscape shots and very closeup/macro shots of flowers.
Budget around 600 - 800.

For a body I was considering the Gx80/Gx85.
For lens the kit one, 12-32, mentions a 0.13x magnification rate, which I think won't be good for flowers.
Looking at various specs I found that the Panasonic Panasonic 14-42 PZ has a 0.34x magnification which seems very similar to the 0.31x 18-55 VR II that I have on my dslr.

There are no stores that stock the Panasonic 14-42 PZ where I live so it would be nice if you can share any feedback for it.

Any other body/lens combo that you would suggest?

Regards,
Kostas
