Wide angle zooms 12-...
Jun 14, 2014


I don't own any mft camera yet, but most of them seem to be more similar and easier to choose than the lenses, thus I started to choose from the other side. I use my camera mostly for travelling with the bicycle so the size of the equipment matters but not as much as when you are hiking.

There are several wide zoom lenses to choose from, but I would like to ask you about their quality. The fast zooms 12-35 and 12-40 are probably too expensive to me, so the decission is between Olympus 12-50 and Panasonic 12-32. Panasonic seems to be better on the paper. It is much smaller but offers the same or better aperture than the Olympus. Olympus might be cheaper when bought used or in set with camera. But how about the image quality?

Thank you very much for your opinions.
