As far as I know, no one ever succeeded in designing good quality lenses over 4x range. The M43 system is based on a smaller sensor, and this makes the standard maximum resolution inferior if compared to an APS-C or FF sensor.

IMOO I would not chose anything over a 3X excursion.

It very mach depends on your personal needs, of course.

The Panasonic 14-140ii for M43 is a pretty good lens. Light and stays pretty sharp right out to maximum zoom.

I have one of those, which I was able to buy very cheaply and have been using it an Olympus OM-D E-M10ii, specifically to test its viability as my one lens compact walk around. It is very good and would suit my wants more than adequately if it only had that little extra width - 12-140 (or 12-100 or thereabouts) would be perfect.
