making a 35/85 combo in MFT
3 months ago

I have been looking for a good small camera with a prime (or two) for a while, and keep coming back to micro four thirds as a strong contender.   A viewfinder is a must for me, and I find the Olympus EM-10 camera body very appealing. I am looking for ideas for lenses to (roughly) correspond to the classic 35mm/85mm pairing on film.  It seems pretty obvious that my "85" would be the Olympus 45mm f/1.8.  What lens do you think would be best in the role of the "35" in this hypothetical cast of characters?
