Default olympus epl2

I am fond of this camera

1.why shud i not go for it ? what are the pros

2.what is the zoom on it ? i cannot seem to find the answer to that .im used to 6 X so anything less might cause discomfort.

3. does the camera come with kit lens , or is it optinal ?
if so do i stick to the olympus or get a panasonic lens ( this seems to be preferd by most on the net , why so ?

i have been told to luk at the sony NEX .
4. side by side comparison , how are the NEX and epl2 . pros and cons ?

im still not ready to by an SLR simply becoz of the size .And i feel that the mirrorless cameras who do a capable job with the compact handy size.I hear u have to do alot of cleaning of the lens ,,, i wudnt even know how to start cleaning .

my only sorrow is that active kids shooting will be blurry on the EPL@2, but i was managing ok ...not gr8 , but ok with my Canon G9

The zoom on the epl2 is wholly dependant on the lens attached.
They mostly come bundled with a typical 3x zoom kit lens.
If you liked the G9- and managed in low light with it- why not try a similar model.
Maybe consider Nikon's P7100 also..
Just beware- if you're shooting fidgety youngsters- a fast shutter speed and autofocus is preferable...
