Would you go... 12-40mm or 17mm + 45mm on EM-1?

Re: Depends on what kind of light you shoot in

The 12-40 is a very tempting lens, BUT if you do lots of low light shooting you're going to find even f/2.8 not fast enough and you'll have to raise the ISO more than you might like to.

I have the 17 and 45 and will stick with those.  I also have the 20 but its focus hunting drove me crazy - so that's why the 17 was purchased.

With any lens decision it really depends on your ultimate purpose for it.
