I'm finally going to pick up a Micro Four Thirds camera after many years of using my much loved E-410. I'm more than happy with the quality of the pictures it produces but I'm often frustrated by its poor ISO capabilities and lack of stabilization, not to mention its tendency to clip highlights and somewhat narrow dynamic range. To be honest, I kind of enjoy fighting with it but it's about time I moved on. I'd ideally like to get an E-M10 but it's out of my price range, even at a knockdown $328 (I'm in Japan but I'll use dollars to keep things simple). My budget is as tight as a really tight thing so I've decided on a new E-PL6 (no battery, flash or lens) for $118. Am I right in assuming my BLS1 batteries are going to work OK? Next up, I'll buy an MMF-2 for $68 so that I can use my 35mm macro and, now and then, the double kit lens. I don't think it's worth trying to save $16 by buying the Viltrox JY-43F as most of the reviews I've seen say it has a bit too much play. I know the auto focus is going to be rubbish with my Four Thirds lenses but I absolutely love the 35mm. I currently use it about 90% of the time. It's just too bad the E-PL6 doesn't have focus peeking. I'll give the Key Line hack a go but it doesn't sound like it's an enjoyable way to shoot. So, here's my question. What lens would you choose to pair with an EPL, bearing in mind I'm on a tight budget and will be using my 35mm? For your information, I'm not interested in portraits or street photography. I sometimes take pictures of my dogs and chickens but I'm usually looking for details, finding shapes in nature, abstract junk and stuff. Indoors, I usually use an off camera flash. I'm quite happy to have a go at most focal lengths. I'm only looking at primes unless anyone can convince me there are any decent low price zooms. Anyway, here are the choices in price order (converted from yen and including shipping): Olympus 17mm f2.8 - $101 used I tend not to shoot this wide but I think I'd enjoy working on my composition with it. I like the compact size. Reviews are mixed, sometimes scathing. (Total price $287) Panasonic 14mm 2.5 - $118 used Perhaps a better lens than the 17mm but I don't think I'd enjoy shooting this wide. I suppose I should I try my zoom at the same length for a couple of days though the prospect doesn't exactly fill me with excitement. (Total price $304) Sigma 19mm 2.8 - $118 used Good lens. Handy focal length. Good price. Maybe a bit plump? Tempted by this one. (Total price $304) Sigma 30mm 2.8 - $143 used The focal length is probably too close to my 35mm. I'll give this one a miss. (Total price $329) Sigma 60mm 2.8 - $143 NEW Absolutely fabulous lens by all accounts. Amazing price. I wonder how it handles on an EPL. This would hardly be the most practical focal length for my only native lens but I think this would push me creatively. It would no doubt also frustrate me indoors, though. (Total price $329) Olympus 45mm 1.8 - $160 used Another great lens. It's fast to focus and fast in terms of light gathering. It's sharp. It's a classic lens. The focal length, however, isn't that much different from my 35mm. (Total price $346) Panasonic 20mm 1.7 - $168 used Wonderful lens that people love to hate. Nice and small. Nice focal length. Maybe it'll produce banding at high ISOs. Fast, but not to focus. Then again I'm used to the 35mm, which can be a dog to focus. I'd probably find the focus speed on this incredible. I seem to keep coming back to this one. (Total price $354) 25mm 1.8 - $235 used I don't know if my budget can stretch this far. It's a bit of a jump in price. I realize this is a fine lens but is it really worth the extra cost? (Total price $421) I think that's everything. Let me know if I'm missing anything obvious. And thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
