14-54 mm mkII vs 12-60mm for EM-1
9 months ago

I just recently acquired an EM-1 which will be a wonderful camera if I ever get it figured out and set up right.  I am trying my 4/3s lenses on it one by one.  While I am happy with the performance of the 50-200mm, the 12-60mm doesn't focus nearly as well and I don't like the ergonomics of the combo.  I want something that I can use on both systems and don't care to spend much and was thinking about a used 14-54mm mkII.  Could anyone who has used both of these lenses on the EM-1 comment on their experience please?

My other alternative is to keep the 12-60mm and pick up a couple of m4/3s primes.  I want something other than a slow kit zoom and am too tapped out to spring for the 12-40mm mm.  (I treated myself to the 70mm instead, thinking that the 12-60mm would fill the bill for walk-around.)

Regards,

Jolene
