    How is it going everybody! I just purchased an OM-D E-M5! I have the 14-42 kit lens and just picked up the 45/1.8. I am starting to think that I could get rid of my t2i and my lenses hahaha.

    I'm thinking I need one more wider lens. My go to lens on my t2i was a tamron 12-50/2.8 is there anything similar that won't break the bank? I like the Olympus 12-50, but it seems to not be talked to highly of.

    Well I'll post some pictures up when I get some good ones. I hope to continue my hobby and learn from all in this forum!

    I can't speak much to zooms, but my advice is take advantage of the m43 system and get some nice small primes - you're already got a great portrait lens. I'd add a 14/2.5 or a 17 (either) and enjoy true quality smallness.

    Hi Ojuice1, welcome to the forum!

    I don't have much advice on wide zooms, I'm afraid; my wide lenses are the Rokinon 7.5mm fish eye, the Panasonic 14mm, and the Olympus 15mm body cap lens.

    Of those the 14mm f/2.5 might be worthy of your consideration. At $200 new it's a bit of a bargain.

    Ahhhh so many lenses. I started looking at the 14/2.5, but then read all the good reviews on the 17/1.8. While reading the reviews for the 17/1.8 there were so many recommendations to get the 25/1.4. So crazy! I guess I will try shooting at those focal lengths with the kit lens and try to figure it out.

    Thanks for the replies guy!

    Welcome to our family. Look forward to seeing your work. It's a shame about Helix closing.
