LEGACY on the EM-1, Need Advice.
5 months ago

Hi guys, I am anovice when it comes to photography and completely lost when it comes to the older genration lenses.

I have been doing a fair amount of reading here and the genral consensus i have reached is a Legacy on a EM- 1 will work well. I have had a bit of a wind fall and have about 1200$ to spare. So was thingking of investing in some good lenses. My requirements are

1) A good Macro lens, I do it in the jungles where the light is bad, and the critters dont make life easy, so a good lens would help.

2) A good tele- for Birding (not BIF), yeh well maybe!!

I went to KEH website and shortlisted the folowing lenses. All are Manaual and 35mm platform. Would love your advice on them so i can get one, or possibly two.

Would love advice and comments from the more experienced friends here. Sorry for the long list...:S
