Two & Three Lens Travel Kits

Two lenses: 20mm f/1.7 and 45mm f/1.8.

Three lenses: 12mm f/2.0, 25mm f/1.4 and 60mm f/2.8.

Two lens zoom kit (the only two M43 zooms I own): 14-45 & 45-200mm Panys.

Three lens extreme kit: 7.5mm f/3.5 Rokinon fisheye (amazing!), 75mm f/1.8 (superb) and 300mm f/6.3 Tokina mirror.

BTW, the Tokina is a *FAR* better lens than most reviewers claim. You just have to know how to process reflex lens images (having done some astrophotography, I'm familiar with the techniques)...and you need to use an Olympus body with its IBIS. When I first tested my copy of the Tokina--taking handheld photos of street signs less than 150mm in height, located roughly a kilometer away and resolving them cleanly--I realized the reviewers were mostly full of it.    And the lens focuses down to about 85cm...that's some serious magnification.
