Replacement for old manual OM 1.8 50mm
Aug 28, 2014

Needed a faster lens for inside shots of family, museums and art galleries so used my old manual OM 50mm with an adapter as short term fix. I am happy with the results even though I was initially concerned that an equivalent of 100mm would be too long (still have that concern). The combination just takes a little longer to use than a dedicated MFT lens.

Now I have some funds I am looking for a replacement.

Currently we are a Panasonic family (G2, G3, GH3) but I am going to migrate to an OM5.

I would welcome suggestions for a 25mm to perhaps 60mm lenses (not sure, but this might be too long). I think I would go up to f2.8.
