Lense advise needed for EM1
9 months ago

Due to get my new EM1 as soon as they arrive in New Zealand could be early Nov, I will be getting the 12-40 zoom, but wonder what prime would be the best to use for photographing paintings, for my website and facebook etc.

I the past I have found that there is distortion with Zooms 24-120 Nikon and 18-55 Fuji.

With the fuji I found the 35 1.4 was very good but have sold this camera to fund the EM1, fuji was limited with focusing when out in the NZ wilderness and in helicopters etc, I have the D600 for that, but may be the EM1 could replace it.

Any advise from anyone who has used the M4/3 system to photograph paintings would be appreciated, I do use a tripod most of the time and mainly Jpegs as I have not fully got on top of lightroom.
