Ordered the E-M1 w/12-40MM F2.8 Pro; Comparable Medium Zoom?
Mar 27, 2014

(last post April 2008)

Headed to safaris in Kenya, South Africa, and Swaziland April 24 and have decided to go light. Very happy with ordering the OM-D Em-1 and ED 12-40MM F2.8 PRO LENS.  Nikon stays home.

What can I order for my new Olympus that is going to replace my Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII?  I would like to have a premium quality Olympus lens for this focal range, but it does not seem one is yet available, and I may be looking at what, the prime 75mm 1.8 until the Pro series gives us something to zoom in the 80-200 range?

Or, simply interim buying the $549, 75-300 zoom, but then I'm worried about picture quality.

Thanks so much for your advice.
