Panasonic Lumix G7...what to get next?

Alright, so I got the Panasonic Lumix G7 last week, comes with the 14-42mm lense.

What else would I need to take couple pictures?

WOULD SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

For portrais, the following fixed lenses are amazing:

Panasonic 25mm f1.7 / Olympus 25mm f1.8 or f1.2 (Whatever your budget permits)
Panasonic 42.5mm f1.2 / Olympus 45mm f1.8 (Whatever your budget permits)

If you hate fixed lenses and you want zoom:

Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8
Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8

If you're planning on shooting a lot indoors then an external flash is a must.

I would also recommend the Panasonic 25mm f1.4 if budget permits. More expensive than the panasonic f1.7 or olympus f1.8 but cheaper than the olympus f1.2

If you want a 1 lens option, the new 12-60 f2.8-4 looks good
