Re: Best zoom for e-m 5 iii

The 12-45 is perfect for the 5.3. Combine it with a small prime for indoors and night time for a great compact set up.

I also would recommend the 12-100 if you want more reach, it is fine on the 5.3 without a grip. The 12-40 is nice but if starting from scratch, I prefer the 12-45 since f2.8 just is not as fast as I want for indoors. The f4 of the 12-45 and 12-100 is more than enough for outdoors. The stabilization of the 12-100 is awesome for indoor static shots of churches, museums etc, as long as you are not trying to freeze motion.
