E-P5 lens choice

I have just taken delivery of the new Olympus E-P5 with the 17mm f/1.8 lens and the VF-4 viewfinder. It's my first MFT camera and so far I love it! I am a great fan of HDR photography and would welcome some advice about which lens would be best for this. I currently use the Canon 17-4mm lens on my 5D3 for most of my HDR shots.

I will also be looking for a suitable MFT zoom lens for bird photography, moon shots, etc. I currently use a Sigma 150-500mm lens for these shots.

Any advice offered on both these topics will be welcome. Many thanks!

I think the m.Zuiko 75-300 is the obvious choice.
