Re: I'll second the 50-200mm vote!

count me in the 50-200 SWD camp. it's my bread and butter. let me put it this way: if I ever dropped and busted it, Id be on the computer to Amazon to get another asap. Value, performance, sharpness, resolution, a/f speed, price yeah it's not a SHG but I have models beating down my door to shoot their portfolios with it. and if U work on your backgrounds, the bokeh is just, just, .... : )

I rented a 35-100 for a spell but it seemed awfully persnickety in the a/f dept. But WOW what images!! So that'd be my second choice--with the 12-60 SWD and 50/2 not far behind.

PS I find the 50-200 SWD better for portraiture than the 50 and the 35-100, because it's not as sharp. sharpness not always good thing. well-lit portraits have a defined, yet soft glow to them with the 50-200 SWD. Best Zuiko Digital lens hands down, for the money.
