OMD-E5 Lens Kit
Jul 11, 2012

Hi, I am a primary Nikon DSLR shooter on the brink of taking the plunge in to M4/3 world. I am looking to consolidate my current DSLR gear to end up with either the D4 or the D3S, and augment with OMD-E5. My main shooting interests are events, action, travel, landscape and low light photos of people and places....

That being said, I am interested in user opinions regarding best lens kit for MFT for the Oly. My budget for the lenses is about $2,500 at the moment... I have already decided on three fast primes - the Oly 12mm/F2, Panny 20/1.7, Oly 45mm/1.8. That leave me about 1k for a either convenience or telephoto zoom. In particular, I am in search of best telephoto zoom - something that might equal (fx )70-200 F2.8; variable aperture zoom that might equal (fx) 70-300 f3.5-5.6, or even something in the (fx)28-300 convenience range. In addition I'd be interested to know the best standard VA "kit zoom" available...

Thank you for your input(s)...
