Hi Folks

I would like to add a Olympus 14-54mm Mark ii or Olympus 11-22mm but still unable to decide which is the better choice. I will need user feedback for the above 2 lens in order for me to make the correct choice.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I have both lenses (14-54 mk1). and the 50 f2 in addition.

Initially I had only 11-22 and 50 f2 and I was doing fine. I could shoot 2-3 weeks trips with this combo without any other needs. Then I added 14-54, but no significant change in shooting habits. It is very helpful however at events, indoors, with or without flash when you don't have time to swap lenses.

so, it depends what you shoot: more WA, go for 11-22 is an excellent lens. More mid range, or events or you need a general purpose lens, go for 14-54.

To mention that I use 11-22 as a general purpose lens as well, but I feel sometimes the need to complement it with 50 f2. Alone may not be enough as general lens.
