Re: E-M5 Lens question or two.

To be honest, the 14-150mm M. Zuiko I am now using as my normal zoom is better than either of the two 12-50 Zuikos I have tried with my E-M5. I'm also carrying the 9-18 M. Zuiko for really wide stuff and the 75-300 for the longer reach.

The 14-150 is pretty darn compact when set to 14mm. I have not yet stood it up at that setting alongside the 12-50 to just compare, but I can tell there's not much of a difference until, obviously, you start zooming the 14-150, but the extra reach is nice. The 14-150 has slightly more heft to it and is slicker-feeling in use, especially if you initiate the grinding, manual zoom of the 12-50.
