I have plenty of lenses for my 5D Mark III, but I was thinking of getting just one more lens for my Olympus EP5 kit. The 17mm is awesome. I was thinking maybe a 45mm 1.8 or a 75-300.

Do I need it, NO! Still, thought Smaybe one more lens for my kit and then call it quits (LOL, yeah right, but no seriously).

From everything I've seen and read, you can't go wrong with the 45mm, especially for the price. A 12mm or 14mm (another lens you can get cheap: $180-ish on eBay) would be another way to go. But my vote is for the 45mm.

My favorite lens is the Voigtländer 25mm, but that's a different critter altogether.
