Re: The old prime vs zoom arguments

It's probably a bad habit to get out of the use of using a flash and one of these days it will probably come back to bite me, but I much prefer to use natural light and low ISO, particularly since transitioning to µ4/3 where ISO noise is noticeable even from 400.

That is another reason here why I use my 12 F/2 a lot with µ4/3, to get the best possible range of lighting conditions and shot opportunities. I have both the 14-42 R, and 40-150 R, the 40-150 R is ridiculously sharp for a cheap lens, but I have my 12 F/2 on pretty liberally purely for the fact as you said, it's actually fairly unusual to have a fast ultra wide lens and it makes for opportunities you wouldn't get other ways.
