Hi everyone,
For some time I have been doing lightpainting with FF body (Nikon) but for Christmas my daughter gave me an Olympus M10 mark II and I noticed that it has the great LiveCOMP utility designed for sill life and lightpainting.
Considering that for the Lightpainting on FF I use focal lengths from 40 to 70mm, and obviously in manual focus, what kind of lens do you recommend that have a very good overall performance? I would use it from f/8 to f/16 ... I've seen both Lumix G 25/1.7 and Olympus 17 2.8 ... but I'm not sure of their quality for my shots. What do you recommend? Being a job in which autofocus is not necessary, I also evaluate some manual focus lenses... Thanks

I think it entirely depends on the composition that you have in mind. When a lens is able to produce a more than decent image with normal photography, it will also be possible to make a LiveCOMP image with it.

The last LiveCOMP image I took, was taken with the Olympus 12-40mm lens:

And here is one taken August last year using the Olympus 9-18mm:
