Re: Which kit lens for OM-D

I bought the OM-D with the 14-42 - the only kit available anywhere at the time of purchase - and then bought the 12-50 from Amazon. I wound up sending it back.

I have no quarrel with the 12-50 from an optical standpoint, other than to echo other posters who question its video capabilities. For me, the sheer size of the lens was the deciding factor.

I bought the OM-D instead of a dSLR because I wanted smaller and lighter ... and the 12-50 pretty much defeats the purpose. For what I do, the fast 42mm is a much better choice.

On the other hand, I will probably miss the 12-50 next time I'm caught in the rain!
