NZ Scott,

Thanks for the 17mm posts. Very encouraging. I also went through much of your very fine gallery. I like your 45mm work as well, especially some of the b/w conversions, "KFeb 2 Kid SFX Yellowed 2", etc.

You have helped me as other posts have. I am more and more clear on which gear to start with - OM-D with 45/1.8 and 17/1.8. I do see the need for the 12mm and a longer lens, but will wait to see how correct I am about MFT.

Thanks very much,


You are welcome sir.

I just noticed that the last photo that I posted was actually shot with the 12/2.0, rather than the 17/1.8.

I think the decision about the 12/2.0 comes down to two factors - can you afford it and do you think you will use it enough to make it worthwhile. It's a good lens, but it's not good value.

The 17/1.8 and 45/1.8 are both good lenses to start with. I don't think you'll be unhappy with either of them.
