I own a OM-D with a Panasonic 25mm 1.4 Summilux lens.

I need to buy smartly lens #2.

I'm considering the wide category: prime and variable options are ok.

Which lens' would best serve me for grab & go/all purpose/low light?

I need a great killer lens.

Im considering:

1. Olympus 12 2.0 or similar.

2. Panasonic 14


I'm open to your thoughts...

I think what matters most is what do you shoot mainly. I shoot street a lot, so I like 12ff2.0 a lot. I like shooting wide when I street hunting. 7-14 gives me wider AOV, but 12/2 gives me better mage quality, and is 2 stop faster.

If you like potraiture I think 45mm or 75 mm would be a good option.

Wild life, sport etc you'd need longer focal lengths.


What do you mainly shoot?
