Re: You need to rethink your Pentax lens replacements

Thanks for pointing out my error. My replacement lens should look like this:

15/21 -> Need to look for replacement (either the 12 or the 9-18 zoom). Initially, I am going to try to live with the 12-50 or 14-54 until I get a feel for what I want on the wide end.

40 -> PL25
70/77 -> Oly 45

I had the 77ltd, but just sold it. The AF with the 77 on the K5 was pretty slow. Manual focus is not that easy. I hadn't thought about us MF on the E-M5. I could be easier since it's an EVF. Oh well, at least I didn't lose any money selling the lens.

You could always buy the 12-35 Panasonic lens. $1,300, but probably a great zoom. Be great for indoor video too. Really great probably. Weatherproof too it seems.

Then the 45mm F/1.8, and a tele I guess.
