    At the moment:

    Olympus 9-18 (my favorite)
    Panasonic 14-42 kit lens (will probably sell it in favor of the Oly 45mm)
    Olympus 17mm (arrived today in exchange for the Panny 20)

    My current kit consists of Oly12, 17 f1.8, 45 and 75, plus the ZD70-300. Thinking I might pick up another Four Thirds zoom, either the 11-22 or 14-54.

    At one time or another I've owned and sold the P14, P20, PL25, Oly15, Oly14-42 (both versions), Oly12-50, Oly40-150 and Samyang7.5, so I've been on quite a journey to settle on my current kit!

    My current kit consists of the oly 12-50, oly 45 f1.8, Pana 14 f2.5 and in the mail there is the Oly 75-300 II.

    I just sold the Oly 40-150 to make room for the 75-300 (as slow as it may be, at 75 and at 150, it is the very same speed as the 40-150 and I've got the 40 end covered, so that leaves me a smallish gap between 50 and 75 which I find quite acceptable.)

    You can see my lenses in my signature. However, I will be thinning the group shortly. Specifically, because of the recently added 12-35mm, I will be selling off the 14/2.5, 14-45 and 45/2.8.

    The 20/1.7 and 14-42X are my extra small kit, which I like having, but don't know if I actually use enough to justify keeping it. That's why I'll likely replace the 20/1.7 with a slightly wider 17/1.8 (black).

    Eventually, I would also like to add a 75-300mm, possibly replacing (sort of) the 45-175mm.

    Ideally, I'd like the 12-35, 35-100, 75-300 (or P100-300) zoom combo with 2-3 fast primes (25/1.4 and 45/1.8) for special purposes (low light, portraits, etc.) However, I'm looking to reduce my investment, not increase it, so that's unlikely.

    Mine are in my signature as well. I'm pretty happy with the lot, though I'm considering the 25 mm prime. If I did that, I'd probably ditch the 14-45 mm.

    My only native lens is the Panisonic 14-45 kit lens, but with adapters I also have available:
    25mm f1.4 & 35mm 1.7 c mount lenses
    10-17 fisheye zoom, 18-55 zoom, 55-300 zoom, 150-500 zoom, 100mm macro,
    28mm f2.8, 35mm f2.4, 50mm f1.4, 75mm f3.5, 135mm f3.5, 200mm f3.5, 300mm f4, 600mm f8 (mirror) ... ...and more.

    Not yet all tried on µ4/3, (some probably never will be) but some useful combinations emerging.
    I'm amazed how big the gap between 17mm & 18mm is on my DSLR, but the 10-17 on µ4/3 seems to fill it reasonably!

    At one time or another, I've had every native lens except 7-14, 9-18, pz kit, 19mm sigma and 17(both). The 7-14 has peaked my interest lately, but I'd have to sell my 12/f2 which doesn't seem to be fetching a good price these days. Right now, 12/2, 20, 35-100, Canon 300/4L and Pentax 50/4 macro, 50/1.7. I like trying different lenses and almost always buy used (it's like renting). I also have EM5 and G5.

    I've got the 12-35, Rokinon 7.5mm Fisheye and the panasonic 45-175. The 12-35 was one I snagged on B&H used (surprisingly) and otherwise it was focal lengths I don't have on my Nikon stuff. Which I am really doing some soul searching about selling off and filling out my m43 gear.

    I have the 17mm, 20mm, 25mm, 45mm, and I also have the 14-42pz, 12-50mm, and Olympus 14-150mm.

    I mainly use the primes, and I probably need to get rid of either the 20mm or 17mm, but they both offer something the other doesn't....

    20/1.7, 14/2.5, 14-42z, 9-18, 100-300. The 20 and the 100-300 get the most use.

    I also have many legacy lenses that I can use via adapters.

    I use the 25mm the most and been shooting with the 45-150 lately, been very pleased with results.

    I'm looking to sell the 4/3 PanaLeica 14-50, it looks badass on the camera, takes nice pictures and the manual aperture ring is very nice, but haven't used the lens much, because of slow focusing and weight mostly, used it on G3 and G5.

    Hopefully when Olympus comes out with a new camera body with 4/3 lens enhancements there might be a renewed interest in this lens and I might sell it for a good price, so I can save for the 12-35/2.8 ;-)

    Panasonic 14/2.5
    Panasonic Leica 14-50/2.8-3.5
    Panasonic Leica 25/1.4
    Panasonic 45-150/4.0-5.6
    Canon FD 50/1.8 SC
    Samyang 85/1.4
