I would appreciate opinions and advice regarding which lens to choose. Weather-sealing is important, so I think I'm mostly limited to the 4/3 50mm f2.0 and m4/3 60mm f2.8 lenses.

I switched to Nikon a couple years ago but had a hard time letting go of my beloved Olympus gear.  My husband is bugging about it though so it's time.  Where's the best place for me to sell it these days?  Just craigslist or ebay or are there any Olympus groups online that have selling forums?

Just wondering how good the Olympus 60mm Macro f2.8 lens is at portraiture and if it can replace the 45mm f1.8 which I currently own? Thinking of purchasing the 60mm f2.8 to replace my 45mm so I can have a lens that can serve as a macro and portrait lens. Any advice would be much appreciated!
