What lens should I get for the G7?

Alright, I'm still pretty new to this, so forgive me if I say something wrong, or end up sounding like I don't know what I'm talking about, or sounding stupid as well. Haha.

Anyway, I'm purchasing a G7 soon for a short film, and future projects. My total budget for both camera and lens is $1,500. I'm looking for lenses that I can take wide shots on, and also zoom in far into the distance. I was looking at Rokinon lenses, but I don't know much about them. Can you guys recommend something?

A second hand G7 body should cost you about $500, that leaves you $1000 for lenses.

You could get three Panasonic/Olympus primes 12/15/17mm (depending on how wide you need), 25mm and 42.4mm or get the Panasonic 12-35mm 2.8 varifocal lens and a 42.5mm Panasonic prime.
