Re: Travel Kit lens your experiences with OM-D


I decided to spring for the OM-D instead and give it a try. I ordered the 9-18 lens with it and a polarizer filter. Due to lots of travel I don't know if I should have gotten the 12-50 with it or the 14-150 as a zoom lens. So I just ordered the body.

How is the 75-300 (I know LOTS more reach but is it good IQ?)

I'm glad I stumbled onto this thread. I am picking up the OM-D w/ the 12-50mm at Adorama tomorrow in NY and wondering what else to pick up for my upcoming trip. I figured the Oly 40-150 & the Pany 20mm f1.7 would round out my travel kit. I considered the 17mm f2.8 but I really wanted a faster lens. I figure the 20mm pancake is perfect for evenings when I don't carry my whole bag but just a purse.

(I'm coming from my 7D so I'm really looking forward to losing some of the weight!)
