    Way up there.
    as you may know, i bought a G3 used with the kit lens. I now have to kit lenses to deal with, my olympus one for the EPM-1 and the panasonic kit lens. Which one of the 2 is better. also, would they be difficult to sell for 90 dollars? I may want to keep both because i have the EPM-1 which i barley use that other family members want to use. I want to save up for some legacy lenses but i am not sure if i could live with one prime fully manual lens.

    I personally like the Panasonic kit lens better, although it is slightly larger.

    Keep the Lumix for when you lend a camera to someone : the collapsible Olympus is way too fiddly for immediate use although I'd put (a tiny bit of) money on it being optically a bit better.
    Now I assume you've got some proper prime lenses too? :)

    Sell it or gift it together with your old body and go buy that lens you've always wanted.

    how much is a reasonable price to sell the EPM1 and one of the kit lenses?

    Sell both and put it toward lenses you want. I got about $90 for each...

    I'd probably be willing to give $90 for one.
