Oly 25mm F1.8 / Oly 12-40?
Jun 24, 2014

Good afternoon all,

Having got into Mft through a secondhand EP-3 to complement my wonderful E5, I fell in love with the primes. I have the Oly 45mm f1.8, a little marvel, and the 75mm F1.8, an amazing piece of kit, complete with the Pana 14 F2.5!  I have now taken the plunge and just bought an E-M1 c/w 12-40mm.

I am still learning, but this camera is already delighting me, and confusing me, and giving me plenty to learn!  

My question:  I am really taken with the idea of supplementing my primes with the Oly 25mm F1.8. For those who have both  zoom and primes, do you find that you are not using the primes due to the quality of the 12-40?  I appreciate the size/weatherseal/wider aperture differences, just wonder about usability?  I hope that makes sense.

Apologies in advance if this has already been asked.  My ability to search this forum needs to improve.
