Re: Pleased with the Oly 12-50 kit lens

I completely concur. The 12-50 has been derided far too much. It spends more time than any other lens on my OMD because it covers so many bases. I have NO issues with the sharpness or any other aspect of it's output. if I'm going to shoot critically I shoot RAW and PP in Lightroom and all is quite well indeed. Unless you're printing posters this lens is all one needs for it's application. I have a 45mm f1.8 for my paid portrait use but otherwise this lens spends the most time on the OMD. For long stuff I'll slap on the 75-300.
