Hello, I currently own the following native lenses in conjunction with my G5. PL25 PL45 P45-150 I have been really looking into getting something wider than the PL25. The Oly 12-50 is starting to intrigue me with its macro function. I only ever use the PL45 for product photos shot in my simple studio and its fantastic in that regard. I do need the macro capabilities when I am shooting smaller items or I need to highlight any particular area of a product. It would be swell if the Oly 12-50 could be used for product photos as well as be my wide. Maybe thats asking a bit much, my PL45 always delivers quality images. Not too much love for the 12-50 here, but some nice images in the sample thread. Anyone have good experience with lens when used in a studio?
