Quick Introduction....Back after many years...
4 months ago

All,

I have returned to DPreview after many years away as I've just purchased an Oly EM-5.  This is an upgrade from an old Oly E-Volt E500 that had been collecting dust and following the theft of a samsung point and shoot (with a fast lens system).  I was looking for something that was a bit more compact but with the functions and capabilities that are more commonplace in a larger SLR.  The added plus is that my wife has an Oly PEN EPL-1 so the lenses should be something we can share.

I should receive the camera shortly and it has a 12-50mm kit lens.  I would like to purchase a prime but I'm struggling as to which one to purchase.  I think I want a 20 or 25mm f1.8 but I may end up getting a 45mm f1.8.  I take photos mostly of family and friends at events so I think a 17mm would be too wide and a 45mm may be too narrow (still not sure)...

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and keeping up with the current events.

thank you,

james
