    I've been a EM-5 user since November last year after selling my Nikon D7000. I was abroad in Australia at the time and just need something a bit lighter, especially when jumping on planes and worried about the carry-on baggage allowance.

    I do miss the Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 which was super cheap (<£300) but took some nice sharp images and superior to the Olympus 12-50mm kit lens IMHO. I tended to use this far more that the popular Nikon 35mm f1.8 - perhaps I just like the flexability of a mid-range zoom over prime lenses.

    At the moment I am tending to use the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 for the majority of my shots.

    Welcome - It's nice to increase the UK numbers a bit but a great forum anyway.
