    The kit 12-50 is a very good lens. The ONLY drawback, IMHO, is the relatively slow aperture settings.

    I'm conflicted about selling mine, since it has the Macro function, and in good light gets really good photos.

    I bought my EM5 body only, as I already owned the 14-42 IIR and felt one "kit lens" was enough. But I recently picked up a used 12-50 for its weather proofing, semi-macro ability and 12mm wide fl. Now contemplating selling the 14-42 IIR, as I don't use either lens all that much. Still, the 14-42 is much more compact and takes excellent images in good light. Though I don't use either lens all that often, they sure come in handy for versatility and when I need weather proofing or semi-macro. Funny how I rarely use "kit lenses" but still need them! :biggrin:

    The 12mm wide-end makes for some great angles.

    Nice lines!

    Is that a halo around the car in the first pic?

    Feeling a bit sad but getting better

    I am an admirer of littleMT's skill with almost any camera (Sony RX, OMD, EPL etc) even, as here, using the generally unloved 12-50mm kit or Pana 14mm lenses.:2thumbs:

    However when her "practice" shots like these are hugely better than my "trying really, really hard shots" using the same camera I being to wonder if I should take up another hobby?:frown:

    Perhaps living somewhere where the sun shines frequently rather than the predominately grey and wet Manchester in the UK might help a bit...

    However she has proven to me that you do not need exotic and expensive lenses to get stunning results and has probably saved me from spending a fortune on lenses going forward - so note to self -keep trying, keep trying, keep trying etc.

    Note to littleMT please continue to do what you do and provide stunning images that we can hope to match.
