Panasonic 14/2.5
May 21, 2013

I've been thinking of getting the 14/2.5 to go with my 45/1.8 to have a small and light walk-around kit with my E-M5.

I had been using the 12-50, but I rarely use anything between the extremes. The 12 is a possibility, but it's much larger than the 14. There's a big difference in angle of view, but if I want something wider, I can carry the 7-14.

Reviews seem generally positive, but most tend to be from the early days when there weren't many alternatives.  I don't see a lot of posts on the 14, although here's a favorable one from earlier today http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3492047

Any reason I shouldn't get the 14 for this purpose?
