Re: Which small lens for parties, family gatherings etc?

For me, the no-brainer lens is one of the 12-60 zooms.  I have the PL version--I find it's quite good for indoors and parties.  Fast focusing, and on my em1.2, bumping ISO to 800 or 1000 still produces decent images for parties, family gatherings, and sharing images on the web.  I don't understand the fascination with 15, 17, or 20 mm primes for these kinds of situations.  The zoom goes wide enough and can provide close-ups without invading personal space.
