I bought an OMD to replace my e 420 on mountaineering trips.  The E420 stayed in the car most of the time because to bulky. For the same reason, i skipped the kit the 12-50 and only bought the 45 mm for portraits of the kids.

Later on i am planning to buy a quality zoom for travel ( the pana 12-35 or the expected oly).

What lens should i buy for mountaineering?  I am undecided between tHe 12/2 and  the 9-18!  Limited weight and bulk are important.  I also want to limit my lens purchases to lenses that give results wit the " Wow" factor and stand out compared to the P&S and phone cams.

Thanks for your thoughts.


I'd go for the 12-35mm f2.8 as it is weather-sealed and would be a great one lens solution. If you need to go wider, you can stitch. The only other weather-sealed lens is the kit 12-50mm lens that may not be sharp sharp enough to give you the wow factor!
