Jim, We are all different !

Some of us like to travel with several zooms offering a range from 12 to 150mm (in MFT terms). I couldn't be bothered carrying all that glass about with me and mostly just travel with my 20mm/f1.7 Panny.

In the film era I used a 35mm (17.5mm in MFT terms) prime as my "go to" lens and I still regard this as the perfect focal length for 90% of one's photography.

But I have to admit, the more expensive MFT modern day zooms are superb, and versatile, and if you don't mind spending a few pennies and also lugging some clunky glass about with you, then take a look at the Panny 12-35, or Oly 12-40.

They are both excellent - but pricey !
