Coming from Canon to EM-5.
Feb 22, 2013

Hey everyone,

I recently sold my Canon gear in favour of the EM-5 solely because I go back country hiking for days at a time often over 100's of kilometres and I can't stand to carry the Canon any more. Given that this is over a long period where I must carry food, and water sometimes weight is pretty much my biggest concern but I also want to have decent quality, I'm aware I won't be getting 5D Mk3. Most of my shots are between 25-50mm on the Canon and then 150-300. Mostly I like to capture the views but also if I see an owl or moose floating around I don't want to be limited. I only print 4x5's really, so I know noise won't be an issue.

What would you recommend for a lightweight kit in that focal range? I'm impressed by the Panasonic 20mm F/1.7 right off the bat, I can see it staying on the camera 85% of the time. I'm really on the fence regarding the 12-50, it seems ideal but the aperture really makes me think twice.

Thanks,
-T

Canon EOS 5D
