Will be traveling to EU soon, and plan to shoot landscape, architecture and maybe a few street grabs; wanted to ask your opinion on lens choices. I would like to travel light so no room for everything. That 45-200, for example is quite heavy, even though it's a great lens. I plan to take an E-P3, and the following lenses amassed over the past 4 years are up for consideration:

- Panasonic 20mm 1.7

- Panasonic 45-200mm

- Zuiko 12-50mm

My suggestion would be to use the M.Zuiko 12-50mm are your main lens.

Then, carried in a backpack and used when needed, the Lumix 20mm for street photography or photos taken at night, and the Panasonic 45-200mm to zoom on distant objects (solar clock, architectural details) even if you find the latter too heeavy.

I Agree with the choices.

The 12-50 has the benefit of Macro.

Tonight I am going to the fair with a sigma 19, and Oly75.
