E-M1 14-150 or 12-40 + Panny 45-200? Samples
5 months ago

OK. So I have an em-1 which I love and the 14-150 which works great for me. I had all the Canon stuff, Full frame, 5dm2, 7d, 70d, all kinds of L lenses and just decided it was too much. Wanted something simpler that would give me great computer viewing images and prints 9X10 and rarely 11X14. Been doing a lot of reading on this forum and generally excellent reports for the 2.8 12-40 and also for the Panny and wondered how they compared. Samples below. Disregard some blown highlights, etc. Just looking at the lens IQ. Focus is on the center of the flowers in the box.

SO, IS THERE ENOUGH OF A DIFFERENCE TO JUSTIFY THE EASE OF JUST CARRYING ONE 14-150? EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT F2.8 AND THERE ARE DOF TRADEOFFS? I DON'T THINK SO.

Olympus E-M1
