Best M4/3 lens for stealthy, “no DSLRs allowed” professional shots in public places?
4 months ago

The quest being, to photograph (not “picture take”) professional models, entertainers, local celebs, etc., in busy, bustling, public places...

This is personally accompanying them, as a service to them, NOT as paparazzi...

A “pancake” or small as possible...

(For Oly Pens)

Fastest focus possible...

Full body, semi-action shots, w/ blurred backgrounds...

Can’t stand too far away and draw attention, has to be a causally walk around, click and move style...

So far I’m tossed up between the Oly 17mm f/1.8 or the Sigma 19mm f/2.8 at half the price... or if anyone can make a suggestion that falls in-between. Already tried the Panny 14mm. It’s too wide, non-corrected in Pens and way too close anyway.

(Should I even think about the Oly 17mm f/2.8?)
