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.

Just picked one up, after being disappointed with the 20's AF speed

I own a total of eight M43 lenses.

A couple more, but who's counting.

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

12 and 45 for me. Love the 45 for chasing my grandson.

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.

Did that a couple of weeks ago. Very pleased with the 75-300 (I), but for macros, or closeups, the 60 is a honey.

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.

I would say the same about my Samyang, but it keeps surprising me.
