Hi All, New here, really enjoying the board and have been lurking for a while! If you're not interested in me as a poster and just want to share your knowledge, scroll down to the What I have section at the bottom of this post; however, the 'A little Background' section helps in understanding my experiences, which would hopefully help in selecting lenses for me. A little background: I used to be a Canon 1000D shooter with a standard kit and 55-250mm lenses for four years. I enjoyed the 18-55mm focal length the most (I liked shooting in cities, particularly with a wide angle for architecture/landscape), but couldn't help but be impressed by the image quality of the zoom, particularly in zoos that I've visited. Now I would like to embark on a prime haul. Particularly with Oly lenses, but I'm fond of the Pany leica 25mm too. I currently have the 12-50mm Oly kit lens, with the 45mm 1.8. I became quietly confident with the 1000D entry level DSLR and having come back from an unbelievable summer in 2012, in which I stayed in Vancouver and was fortunate enough to take trips to Whistler and Banff during my stay; I realised that I wanted an even better camera, one that helped with my shooting, yet was small and capable of even greater IQ. After visiting a friend in Canada, I now want to visit a friend in Taiwan (making the most of my friends who have ventured since leaving Uni), as I'll never be able to do these dream holidays again (although I do hope otherwise!). That said, before I become a mortgage-led man, I want to enjoy what I have left of my twenties and I will be practising heavily with my new OMD before leaving for Asia in the summer - around a 3 and a half week tour. Now that that's out the way, I'm still very much an amateur photographer with a growing interest in photography. I'd like to become accustomed to a tripod (I haven't used one yet, although I have shot in manual mode successfully for some time (not a total noob)). In Taiwan, I'll mainly be shooting street and day's out - the usual travellers stuff, but I'll also be heading into the mountains, as well as the zoo. In Hong Kong, I hope to head to Yangshuo upon early references from a friend who's visited. Any other recommendations for places to visit would be welcomed. Having searched for months for my next camera, the 12mm 1.8 lens from Oly really swung me to the OMD, along with it's low-light capabilities and auto focusing system. The fact that it's a wide-angle with solid IQ and the snap to manual focusing feature really makes me scream 'I want!' Yet after perusing the 75mm 1.8 image thread; I've realised that this now tops my list. What I have: 12-50mm Oly Kit Lens 45mm 1.8 Oly lens What I'm thinking / looking for: Kit package one: Olympus 12mm 1.8 Olympus 75mm 1.8 Kit package two: Olympus 17mm 1.8 Olympus 75mm 1.8 Kit package three: Panasonic 25mm 1.4 Olympus 75mm 1.8 Kit package four: Olympus 12mm 1.8 Panasonic 25mm 1.4 Olympus 75mm Kit package five: Recommendations. Worries: The 75mm will let me down at the long end, having less-than-adequate zoom at a zoo… I could stretch to kit package four, but it'd be a rather large expense. I'm buying a Billingham and Hadley bag too; and then add to the lenses the filters and it's a truly expensive haul that I hope will last me 5 years. But in reality, I know that flashes and hoods, as well as a tripod are down the line, with expensive taste. Thank you for any suggestions and sorry for a rather large post.
