Re: What camera body are you using ?

Nice shot.. the Panny 14-45 is indeed a nice lens. I just gave mine away to a friend but carried it until recently, paired with my E-M1 Mk 1 for motorcycle and camping trips because of the small size. Great image quality, small and light.

I have carried the 12-40 all over Southeast Asia the past 5 years but wanted something even smaller and lighter so I just replaced it with the 12-45.  Space is at a premium, as is carry-on weight. The E-M1.2, 12-45, 35-100/2.8 and 15/1.7 or 25/1.8 is well under 2kg.

The 12-45 really is a little gem. Besides being smaller and lighter than the 12-40, I love the extra reach (90mm vs 80mm)  and close up capability for flowers.
