Re: Olympus 25mm

I have both the EM5 and EM1.  I now put the 25mm 1.8 on the EM5 and use it to carry with me everyday with just a foam poouch and a wrist strap.  I also have the 45mm, but tend to not carry it except for when I know I will be shooting.  I carry it along with 7-14, 12-40 and 35-100 in a Think Tank Retrospective 5.  For telephoto I use either the 75-300 or the SWD 50-200, carried in a separate bag and used on the EM1.

No doubt the bag and zooms are more versatile, but it is the EM5 and 25 that I grab everyday.  Prior to this I had the PL 25, but traded it for the Oly for the lighter, smaller package.  I am not disappointed with this choice.  When I travel, I take it out at night.  During the day, it is usually the bag along with monopod and tripod.

To choose between the 17 and 25 is personal preference.  For me, it was 25.
