Re: What Lens for Luggability?

Whilst the 12-35 is the better lens, it is 3 times the length and 3 times the weight of the 14-42X, so if luggability is important and taking in to account the OP's original needs, the 14-42X may well be more suitable. It is a great walking about lens. I use it a lot on my G3 when I want a pocketable camera.

Also remember that Ex Teleconverter lets you double the focal length for the odd longer shot if you don't mind dropping from 16Mb to 4Mb which again it sounds like the OP would be happy to do.
