My EP5 is my "second" system, and I currently have the 12-42 II R, 40-150mm, pany 14, and sigma 30mm. This is my travel system. I'm thinking of finishing up my "system" with a 7.5 & the 75-300. I had thought about the sigma 60 or the Oly 45, but I think I'd use the 7.5 or the larger zoom more. I shoot a wide variety of image types, and my main goal was keeping the kit very small but still have a wide range of capabilities. How would you top off my "system"? If you want to see what kind of images I do, look at my gallery.

I really want a really long (75-300) and a really wide at some point, but personally since I have gotten it I don't think I'd trade my 45 for either of them.

I know I'm going for the 7.5, but I wonder if I'll find the 75-300 to big for the EP5 (I do have a 2.8 zoom and 300mm for my Nikons, but I shoot them mainly from tripods). The other day I used just the 14mm and 40-150mm and was thinking "do I really need anything else?".....try not to end up with 6 or 7 lens and only use 2 or 3.

Hey Jeff, if I were you I'd consider the Olympus 60mm 2.8. It can do mult-task duty as a macro, short tele and pseudo portrait lens. For your flora and creature shots, it'd be great. I'd also consider consolidating the 14 and 30 for a Panasonic 20mm, which would give you at least one fast lens for your city work and for travel snaps. Oh yeah, sell the 14-42 R and 45-150 and get a Olympus 14-150 (though the new Panasonic 14-140 is way nicer), ultimate consolidation!

14-150 - 7.5 | 20 | 60

That would be a nice travel kit! :wink:

Jonathan -The 14 & 30 are my "two lens kit" and I really like the results and the range they cover and that they fit in just about any pants I wear. I love my Kit and the 40-150mm for my journeys into the deserts of the southwest . Hmmm, that's my problem I love them all:) Yes, the new Pany 14-140mm seems to be very good, it and the Gh4 would be the perfect travel video camera (and I'm sure the Gh4 would love my Nikkors for real shoots). Now that the refurb 60's are only $319 they are indeed an attractive option. If only I still didn't have holes, (like a D800 or the new 80-400) in my Nikon system it would be so much easier:)
