I know there are plenty of other discussions on the go similar to this but wanted to get some thoughts here. I'm a long time reader and first time poster. I've been using an E-P1 for a year or two now and have the original kit 14-42mm (haven't used for nearly a year), the Panasonic 14mm f2.5, Samyang 7.5mm fisheye (wonderful little thing!), a Canon FD 50mm f1.8 (which is the lens I find myself using paybe 70-80% of the time) and a very crappy FD 70-200mm which I rarely use. I've gotten fairly used to manual focusing on the 50mm and actually find the 14mm frustratingly small to MF coupled with the E-P1's slow AF. I'm currently in the process of convincing myself to upgrade to the E-M5. It deals with pretty much all my issues with the E-P1 and then some. I'm mostly there but am still unsure of what setup I want. My girlfriend is going to have the E-P1 when I upgrade so I'll still have limited access to the other lenses but she'll be taking the 14mm and the 50mm. I'm fairly set on getting the Oly 45mm as this is the length I've become used to shooting at and it's so highly regarded but what I'm really stressing about is the kit lens. I'm fairly used to using primes now and don't have a big problem swapping lenses out but losing the 14mm for the most part will mean I won't have anything wide (apart from the fisheye). Having the 12-50mm does cover me there but obviously reviews of it aren't great. I'm just a little worried that it will go the same way as my original 14-42mm and I'll want to replace it with something else in the not too distant future. That something else is likely to be the PL 25mm but then that leaves me with no options wider than that. I don't really want to spend the money on the 25mm and I reckon I'd end up buying another 14mm on top of that as well or saving my pennies to get a 9-18mm. Either way it works out more expensive. Another option is the 45mm + 20mm which comes up a little more expensive than the kit + 45mm and I'm not sure if 20mm is wide enough for all my needs. Already having the old 14-42mm, how is the 12-50mm going to stack up against it? I think most of my problems with it on the E-P1 are the slow autofocus and next to nothing low light handling but I guess both of those would be somewhat resolved thanks to the E-M5. Anywho, as you can tell I'm able to talk myself round to all sides of this so some outside opinions would be much appreciated!
