Olympus E-M5 - Please help me choose from the following lenses
Jul 10, 2013

Hello. Thanks to RaymondR, I believe I'm in the right forum.

I recently purchased an Olympus E-M5 with a 12-50mm lens. I have an opportunity to buy a selection of used lenses and I was hoping you could help me choose one or two of the best ones for my purposes. I primarily take photos of my children and I'm interested in portrait photography. I do like landscape shots also. I've tried to research this myself, but the information is overwhelming. I'm thinking the 12-50 would be a good all purpose lens, but I'd like to know if any of these lenses can give me something special that the 12-50 cannot. I can't buy them all and I'm trying to avoid redundancy or overlap in lens performance.

These are the Olympus lenses I have to choose from:

9-18mm
17mm F1.8
45mm F1.8 (I've read very good reviews of this lens)
60mm Macro
70-300mm

Any suggestions would be most welcome!
