Re: Olympus 14-54mm Mark ii or 11-22mm

I currently own the 14~54 Mk II, but I have also owned the  11~22.  I sold it because I seldom used it and it overlapped the 14~54 too much, and had no tele capability.  It is however an excellent lens.

For me, if I could only own one lens it would hands down be the 14~54 which I think is a far more useful general purpose lens.   For a lightweight travel wide angle, I own the 9~18.  It's certainly not built as well as the 11~22 and not as good optically, but it's still a very good lens and weighs about half what the 11~22 does. That makes a good, light travel system, especially when coupled with the diminutive 40~150 MKII.  Total weight of about 2.5 LB.
