I have a lot of the m4/3 lenses. The 7-14mm is a great lens but subject to flare like the nikon 14-24. i like the 14-140mm as an all purpose lens. The 14-45mm is also quite good. I do not have experience wit h the 12-50mm. In terms of a 45mm, the olympus is great especially for portraits but the panasonic 45mm 2.8 macro is super. It is great as a close up lens and quite good at infinity. The 12mm is good but manual focus. The 20mm is so small and fast at F1.7 -- no brainer in my opinion. Quite sharp too.
So i commonly bring the 7-14, 14-140, 45mm macro, and 100-300mm. If space is an issue then i take the 14-45mm in place of the 14-140mm
For me, when I'm doing some serious hiking/backpacking/climbing compactness and weight are the biggest concern and IQ second. Though I like to have it all.
Right now, as I indicated, I have an LX-5 and a D700 and nothing in between.
So I was thinking:
12-50 kit lens
and then have something like the 12/2 and 20/1.7 around for low light..
I could even use my 105/2.5 AIS and 200/4 plus adapter and still get image stabilization!
On my last climb I took:
and though not excessive, it was a tad heavy and bulky. I'll need to compute the weight difference later...Show more →
