I just bought the EM5 which came with 12-50mm lens. I am going to Morocco in a few months and would like to add another lens but I'm not sure which would be most beneficial.

I'm leaning towards either the Oly 17mm 1.8, 45mm 1.8, 60mm macro. I figured I needed one additional lens for those times where need something good in low light.

One other question I have is if there is any negatives to using the 60mm macro but not as a macro? Does it do just as well as a macro as in taking portrait shots?

I think the 60mm makes a great portrait lens. Take a look at Damian McGillicuddy's blog for examples.
