    So im in a tuff spot and dont know what to do.

    My current lens are. oly 45mm 1.8 oly 17mm 2.8 ver.1, kit zoom 12-50, oly 75-300mm, oly 9-18.

    I find my self using the 45mm a lot for low light performance but were im using it is a little long on the focal length to use in tight spaces. and lately i been shooting a lot of band concerts locally trying to get practice and to one day make some nice side money off of it. I find myself a lot of the times wanting a zoom when im in the field because i cant adjusted my position to get a better shot(aka mosh pit right behind you). I recently in the last two weeks learned about the Panasonic 35-100 and 12-35 with constant ap. of 2.8. And im been thinking of almost selling all my current lens to get one of the Panasonic lens and get the other one when i get some money flowing. Frankly i am confused on what i should do. if i have missed anything or you have questions feel free to post so i can help you to help me.:thumbup:

    Panasonic's are fast zooms at 2.8, but make sure it's as fast as your venues require.

    Indeed. I'd use you lenses at f2.8 for a night to make sure it's ok. My sister used to do concert photos semi-professionally, and while she used her 2.8 zoom [on APS-C], she still needed a fast prime.

    You can sell the 12-50 and 17mm 2.8 and buy the 25mm f1.4

    I don't find that that focusses well in low light.

    Get a g3/g5 and use the 12-50 and 45/1.8 along side the OM-D.

    I find it useful to use two bodies at the same time. My current set up is an epl2 with 7-14/4 and an ep1 with 30/2.8. Any shots in between, zoom in/out with my feet. :cool:

    Couldnt ask for a better set up (Ofcourse im lying:rolleyes:--i wish i had the dough to get an RX1 and a GH3)

    hmm maybe i forgot to mention something, i need the low light performance. i would love to use the 12-50 as it would give me some good zoom coverage but i really dont like that is not a constant aperture :/ and i cant be at 50mm 6.3ap when im doing manual when at show or fast action were i need to have things set up correctly, if you get what i mean.
