Steve_'s current gear

Olympus OM-D E-M1
Olympus OM-D E-M5
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm 1:1.8
Incremental upgrades, great viewfinder and improved controls conspire to produce a more impressive Oly
Controls don't live up to their potential but most other things do.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm 1:1.8
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm 1:2.8 Macro
Another 'just right' lens similar to the 45. Superb cost and optical engineering serve up a great value.
Feels good, is tiny, takes great pictures.
Feels a bit the toy but cannot argue the IQ and features at the price.
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm 1:1.8
Olympus M.Zuiko ED 75-300mm 1:4.8-6.7 II
Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm F1.4
Nearly optimal optically; the heavyweight in all regards.
Pretty good at the short end, IQ declines with focal length.
Takes great pictures; a bit on the chunky side in context.
Panasonic Lumix G 14mm F2.5 ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 ASPH
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm F2.8 ASPH Power OIS
Tiny lens with rather good image quality and great autofocus.
Everything but the flare is scaled way down from a DSLR's pro-grade UW zoom.
Impressively compact lens that takes impressive photos.
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 35-100mm F2.8 OIS
Rokinon 7.5mm 1:3.5 UMC Fisheye CS
Good match to its shorter brother. Constant physical length at all times is refreshing.
If you like fisheyes you already love this.
