Olympus 17/1.8

The Olympus 17/1.8 is my favourite walkabout lens. It's small, light, bright and - most importantly for a walkabout or street lens - it has blazing autofocus.

I own a total of eight M43 lenses.

My most-used lens is probably the 12/2.0, but I don't use that so much when "walking about".

Two other lenses I've been using a lot recently are the 75-300 II and 60/2.8 Macro - but again, I don't use them much when walking about.

The lens I use the least is probably the Rokinon 7.5, which is ironic because optically that is probably the best of the lot.
