Hi everyone thanks for the input.

One reason I was thinking em10iv over the em5iii is because I really don't like the feel of the 12-40 pro in my hands. Yes it's got great image quality, but I just feel like going in that direction might be replicating what I don't like about my current setup.

The new 12-45 would be an expensive option. Pancake zoom,. Maybe?

I think anything else in m43 will disappoint compared to the 12-40, especially if you like to shoot at 12mm a lot.  The 12-40 is the best m43 lens I've found at 12mm and I own the 12-45 and PL 12-60 in addition to a few others.  The 12-40s 40mm end is weaker but decent if used at f4 (at least for my copy).  The 12-45 and PL 12-60 are better than the 12-40 at the long end though.  So a lot depends on what part of the FL range you value most.

If you want a good really compact lens get a hold of the Pany 12-32.  It's not as good as the 12-40 but it surprises for a small kit type lens.
