a few questions for Panny 12-35 owners with Oly 12 & 45 experience.


I have the Oly 12mm and 45mm along with the 12-50 kit lens. Today I received the 100-300 Panny.

I really want to obtain the 12-35 thinking this could be my replacement kit on my EM-5 for my Nikon and 24-70 that I recently sold.

Can I sell my 12mm and 45mm and get by with the 12-35? I realize the 12mm is f2 and the 45 is f1.8 so I would have a little more speed with those lenses.

To anyone with hands on experience with those three lenses, is the performance close enough to get me by with the 12-35?

I know my shooting style and I would enjoy the zoom more than primes. (Even though primes are smaller, faster and some of 4/3rd's best lenses.)

Thoughtful comments are much appreciated.

I hunt, I peck, I squint, all on a MacBook Pro 13" laptop. So don't laugh, I'm happy there aren't more typo's! (Love the screen and touch pad, hate the keyboard.)
