I am thinking of getting a small lens for family gatherings, children, people even some street while business traveling. My aim is to create a small, light and vert portable kit with my EM5.3

I am between these:

- Lumix 14mm/2.5 (the smallest m43 AF lens?)

- Olympus 17mm/1.8 (slightly more expesnive and maybe a bit short for selfies)

- Olympus 17mm/2.8 (reviews are so-so)


For close-in groups of people -wide like 14mm or extra wide like 12mm f2.0.

15mm approximates the typical cell phone field of view so I use the15mm Summilux for snapshots.
