I'm teaching my friend's 10 year old granddaughter photography. She likes to get in close at around 12mm so I would say get something that goes that wide.

Weight is an issue with them, and I am also worrying sometimes about an accident happening so I wouldn't want to trust a child with something too expensive.

- her younger sibling no. I don't even trust him with animals weighing less than him.

For the above reasons, I would suggest a 12-32 that produces excellent results, is as light as you will find, and is comparatively cheap to buy.

I just searched it, is this the Panasonic one? Does OIS on a Lumix lens work in conjunction with an Olympus camera?

Thank you.
