Re: A list of good/bad MFT lens for new owner?

I have the following:

7-14mm - keeper

12-35 - keeper

14mm pancake - keeper for how small it is

25mm f/1.4 - worth the extra $150 over the 20mm (way too slow to focus)

60mm macro -  best of the macros I've tried

40-150mm - cheap but threat when there is enough light

The 45mm is a great lens and cheap too. I'll get another one eventually I'm sure. I really want the 75mm which looks amazing and eventually I'll pick up a 17mm f/1.8 if I can find a sharp copy.  If you are into fisheye the as yang looks great.

Skip all the kit lenses especially if you are coming from full frame like I did.

If money is no object get the 7-14, the 12-35 and 35-100 and then the 17 or 25 depending on your preference and you are covered for just about any situation. Fill deep other lenses depending on need like fisheye or macro et al.
