Playing with a recently acquired GM5 with the kit lens at a park in Tokyo. Impressed with what this combination can do as a general purpose walk-around lens.

The 12-32 is certainly a great little lens.  It has Mega OIS, but it is hard to know how much benefit it gives, I suspect 2 stops is about right.  That means that the 12-32 at 15mm is virtually as good as the 15mm F1.7 (for stationary subjects)...and it looks like it!

Add a JJC auto lens cap.  You can then safely forego a protection filter so that the lens is even smaller and always ready to go.  Looks cool, as well!

Be gentle mounting the lens, hold it by the body not the zoom ring, or the latter will come off (can be fixed with double sided tape, though)

Enjoy
