The OMD is pretty good at handling noise, much better than previous Pens and the IBIS is fantastic.

A fast wide aperture lens is not going help much for street photography in low light, its all well and good being able to open up but its at the cost of dof.

I still haven`t got myself a decent fast zoom and I have found that the 12-50mm is not as bad as some people claim.

For low light street photography with a slowish zoom I find Auto ISO in M mode works well, just set the perimeters to your liking.

If your getting the 12-50mm try this for now and see how it goes, I`ve found it much more practical to stock up on decent primes than to splash out on exotic zooms.

As for the free 45mm lens, I thought the offer ended at the end of January, unless there`s been a change.

yes, now until end of feb and a free battery as well
