Both are excellent, but 60mm is sealed.


I do not know if this is important to you but it is to me.

The OMD is weather "sealed" but currently there are only 4 lenses available for the OMd or GH3 which are similarly made.  The 12-35 and 35-100, (P) the 12-50 and 60 (O).  I own the 12-35 and the 60 2.8.  Thes provide a weather protected pair from 24mm equiv to 120mm equiv in a very small format with the em5.

I also own the 75mm1.8 for the best bokeh, but that only comes out indoors or for outdoors in good weather.  I was hoping for the new 75-300 to be sealed as they are changing the overall design, but that does not appear to be the case.

I don't think you can go wrong with either, but to me it made sense to get the 60 for both the WS and the close up range,

Hope this helps,
