Is the 12-50 that bad
May 6, 2012


I presently own a Nikon D90 with a 1.8 35mm g lens, a 18-200 vr ll lens, and a tokina 12 24 wide angle. I've been pretty happy with this system except for the weight issue. So I ordered a black omd with the 12 to 50 kit lens. I 've heard that this lens is soft particularly at the long end. I like to take landscape shots,urban landscape,night scenes, and street shots when I am traveling. Will I regret getting this lens? Will I notice a difference printing up to 11 by 14? Should I get the primes? I do prefer the zooms and I do like that the 12 to 50 goes down to 12 mm.

One alternative 9-18 mzuiko
20 mm 1.7 panny
45 mm 1.8 zuiko
But this is too expensive to get all at once. My budget is about $1700
Any Ideas?
