I've been reading a lot over the past few days as I'm looking for something special to fill the gap between my Samyang 7.5mm and Olympus 45mm. I'm hoping the forum experts can help as I keep on changing my mind! I shoot travel, people, land/cityscapes, and my 1 year old son. I like to travel as light as possible and happy doing PP. I'd almost be happy with just the two but obviously there are times when neither are appropriate for this type of photography. I've tried to fill the gap with 3 lenses over the past two years, while all light and sharp lenses none of them were as much fun and would spend the least amount of time on my camera; 14mm 2.5 - good for landscapes but find that the FE is a lot more fun and if I defish the images often look more impressive than the 14mm. 20mm 1.7 - a great all round lens and good for low light. 30mm 2.8 - bit better for people shots I've narrowed it down to two choices: PL 25mm 1.4 12-35mm 2.8 I'm just left with a few questions for those with experience of these lenses. The PL25mm is still my preference but only because it's smaller, lighter and cheaper but thinking it may be more sensible to invest in the 12-35mm? I have seen that you can buy the Fuji X-E1 with 18-55 lens for the same cost as the 12-35mm itself, which sounds like it may even be a sensible alternative?! Does the PL25mm do video well enough? I don't shoot a lot but read it has a noisy focus that can be heard in video, where as the 12-35mm is meant to be absolutely silent? The 20mm had a noisy focus which annoyed me in video work. Is the 12-35mm better for low light than the PL25mm because it has OIS? I read that it offers up to 3 stop advantage which puts it ahead, but obviously won't work for moving subjects. I assume if I were to upgrade to a camera with IBIS later on this advantage would be irrelevant though, as the PL25 would then be stabilised too? Though seems the GX7 doesn't stabilise video.. Can either of these lenses eliminate the need to carry the 45mm everywhere? (imagine I'd still take it if deemed needed but be nice to carry one less lens in my bag all the time). The PL25mm because it's capable of shooting low light and portraits with similar or better rending qualities? (albeit at a wider angle). Or the 12-35mm because it can do low light with it's OIS and at 35mm 2.8 can cover portraits? Thanks.
