Ever since I got into photography I've been attracted to images made with a 35mm equivalent lens. I love storytelling in photography, and the ability of the classic 35mm to present both a defined subject and tell something of their environment has always seemed perfect for that. Oddly though, I've never actually owned a 35mm equivalent on digital... I had an SMC-M 35/f2 that I used with B&W on a Pentax MX and LX for a while, and loved it to death. My first ever Micro Four Thirds lens was a Lumix 20mm, but while I loved the perspective, the tactile experience left me numb and the focussing frustrated. After selling that I managed to build up a full set of primes, including all of Olympus' non-macro primes, but my go to lens became the 25mm Voigtländer and the 17mm never made in into my bag. For the last 12 months I've ummed and ahhed, looking at basically everything on the market, from an RX1, to a 100s, to a D600 + Nikkor, and about a half dozen 'tries' of the Zuiko (my local knows my full name, mobile and email by heart...) but never managed to settle on anything... Went in today: "Is that the first black 17mm I've seen in Tasmania?" "Yep." "Will you price match?" "Yep." And here she is :smile: I think the EM5 + 17mm + 45mm will make a brilliant little travel trio!
