This is a personal feeling and individual preferences. When I had an E-M10 II, used to shoot it with 12-40 and no grip for a long time and it really never bothered me. I do prefer 12-40 on em5 ii and 12-100 on em1 ii simply because it looks better imho (pure vanity I guess). At the same time I have zero problems shooting 40-150/2.8 on em5 ii without a grip for a long time. Probably the same with the Pen-F - I simply don't have long enough to see what works and feels better on it.This is really a personal feeling.
I'm much more at ease with a small lens, having the weight centered on the body. That's my preference.
That doesn't mean I won't be able to shoot with a E-M5.3 + 12-40 f/2.8 - I've worked with much worse combinations in the past - but I wouldn't enjoy it as much as with a smaller lens.
So clearly, I wouldn't take the 12-40 f/2.8 as a walkaround lens on my E-M5.3.
