Surprise! I choose Olympus because of the kit lens, I explain why

of course i am not talking about the 14-42

i define kit lens as lens bundle with camera

here i can get E-M5 II with 12-40 pro for around US$1000, this is super deal

i do some research, among all crop system

for kit lens that can bundle with camera, Olympus lens is the most expensive


Olympus 12-40 pro

Sony 18-135

fuji 18-55

canon ef-m 18-150

Panasonic 12-60 f3.5-5.6

if one buy the lens alone, Olympus 12-40 pro is the most expensive of the bunch

this lens also most useful to me because i do landscape and need 24mm equivalent

only Olympus and Panasonic give that FL and of course F2.8 better than F3.5

Of all the talk of going full frame, people ignore the kit lens

which of course must be care by most people that money is a concern

try use the current hot camera A7 III with FE 28-70 kit lens

Oh, no! i would rather use 16MP MFT with 12-40 pro

By the way, i would broaden kit lens definition a bit to lens about US$500

so even not bundle with camera, one can easy buy with no money concern

than 2 stand out

1 for Sony camera SIGMA 16/30/56 F1.4

2 for Canon M EF-M 11-22

2019 mark my 13 years in photography,

only last 3 years or so, i realize lens more important than camera

i wonder how many rush to full frame crowd understand

Olympus E-M5 II Sony a7 III
