re- learning to love the 14-42mm ONE

This is a kind of "love the one you're with" post. After having banned the first version of the 14-42 (epl-1) and having bought the primes that cover the essential focal lengths. I find that the 14-42 often sneaks back into my shooting habits.

Just recently I got the Oly 40-150 with a Raynox macro lens, since I needed a fast and simple macro setup. But when I don't have this combination with me, I sometimes remember to try the 14-42. Sure it's close-up, not macro, but it does a good job and often manages to surprise me. I would say that is generally true of this lens, at least in good light.
