Re: Purchasing a Travel Lens

Last year I bought the Olympus 12-100mm f/4 IS Pro lens for travel. It covers all the range that is needed for travel unless there is wildlife photography involved with small critters. Look at your own travel pictures and see how often you needed something longer than 100mm (of full frame 200mm). It is not "light" at 20 ounces except if one considers its zoom range makes it a viable replacement for having the 12-40mm f/2.8 AND the 40-150mm f/2.8 lens on a trip.

With Olympus lenses the IS works in tandem with the IS of newer Olympus cameras and you get an additive effect in terms of f-stops of optical stabilization gain. I also have the Olympus 12-40 f/2.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8 and have been very impressed by the IQ from these zoom lenses and their autofocus performance and build quality.
