Default zoom lens?

Hi, I am considering buying the Oly EPL-1. What would be a good zoom lens to go with it?

forgot to mention, I have a Canon xsi, with kit lens, a 50 prime, and also a 55-250. Is there a zoom to fit the EPL thats not as heavy as the 55-250?

nice inexpensive one is the panasonic 45-200mm, gives you a range of 90-400mm. It is about 280 new. They have the 100-300 from panasonic giving 200-600mm of reach, since it is new it is 600 dollars.

In this there are some samples of the epl-1 with the panny 45-200 to compare to my canon t1i dslr with the 70-300mm

Wow I'll have as much money in this setup as I do in my Canon xsi. Your pics are stunning though.

It is a very impressive setup. I really like that the epl-1 with the panasonic zoom. It is allot simpler to travel with then my T1i or my canon film cameras.
