    Hi everybody, I recently got an Olympus E-PL5 with 14-42 kit lens and the 40-150 telezoom. I also bought the 45mm 1.8 - a truly magnicificent piece of optics. Now I am in the process of selling most of my Canon DSLR gear. Most of it has been collecting dust in a closet for a long time. I hardly ever use it because of the size and weight - hence the switch to m43.

    My next step will be to get either the Oly 17mm 1.8 or the Panasonic 25mm 1.4. Before I decide, I will read the forums a bit more. :smile:

    If you instead buy the Lumix 20mm you can stick your camera in your pocket ...

    Thanks for the advice, Ulfric! However, I just bought the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 last night, and so far I love it. Carrying around is not too much of an issue for me; it is already a small combo and fits well into the messenger bag I basically carry with me all the time.

    Welcome to the forum! Either of those lenses would have been a fine choice. Enjoy!
