Hi everyone

I just bought a new omd-em1 as a kit and therefore got the 12-40 2.8 in the bag, which is a really lovely lens. However I got the 17mm 1.8, 25mm 1.8 and the 45mm 1.8 and also a separate camera house for my wife, where the 45mm is more or less permanent fixture.

I think the new lens is lovely and takes good pictures, however the 25mm in particular is really lovely and Im sure I would miss it. Also putting it on my wifes Olympus ep-3 is a bit of a waste and then the 12-40 does weigh quite a bit.

So my question is since I don't want to have a 1000 EUR lens lying in a bag somewhere never to be used, which of your lenses have you used the most if you have had more of the ones I mention ?

I would keep the zoom and the 17mm or 25mm as a light and nice low light alternative to the 12-40
