Two questions from a new OM-D user
Oct 15, 2012

Hello folks,

I am a brand new owner of a E-M5 with kit lens. I'm a rather experienced amateur photog, I own and use a Pentax k-5, a Pentax Q, and a Leica X1. My kind of photos are mainly street candids.

I have two questions for you:

  1. I want something more compact than the kit zoom. What lens next you suggest to buy? I am looking at the Oly 12 mm ƒ2.0 and the 17 ƒ2.8 pancake, but the reviews, esp. for the latter, aren't flattering... What about the Lumix 20 ƒ1.7 or the 14 ƒ2.5? Any drawbacks in using Panasonic lenses on the OM-D?
  2. There is a setting for changing the grid in EVF, but I can't have it to work. The grid shown in EVF is the same grid shown on the display (and set accordingly in prefs). Is it a known bug or am I missing something? btw, I'm on firmware 1.5.
