Hi All, I'd appreciate some quick answers to my questions at the bottom of this post, so if you can help and are in a rush, jump there!!! I initially made a post "OMD Lens Suggestions, £1000 for a trip to Asia (Taiwan, Hong Kong & Singapore)", where I received many different recommendations for different kits. It's taken me months to decide and become happy with my choices and I had to throw out the idea of a 12-35mm Panasonic as I really wanted the two primes and couldn't afford to get all three. Furthermore, I hope that Olympus will release a zoom and I'll get that one instead, in the future. So far, I've been impressed with the macro capabilities of the kit zoom, and it's made me interested in getting the 60mm eventually, but I can't afford it at this moment in time. Until then, I'll continue to use what I have and what I've just purchased! This is what I went with: Panasonic Leica 25mm 1.4 Olympus 12mm f2 Olympus 12mm Hood (I know, expensive and has its faults) Billingham Hadley Pro Bag (hoping this will fit my gear, along with a Panasonic X800 Video Camera) This is to be added to my current gear: Olympus OM-D EM 5 Olympus 12-50mm Zoom Kit Lens Olympus 45mm f/1.8 Panasonic X800 Video Camera Bag: I chose the Billingham Hadley Pro as it seemed the most cost-effective bag. I really wanted the small, but it was just too small - I couldn't fit my video camera in there, along with the rest of my kit. So I've gone with the Pro and I'm hoping that all of my gear will fit nicely. If it doesn't, then it'll have to be returned and I'll get the 207. Lenses: I had to throw out the 12-35, but I'm hoping that my three favourite focal lengths from my trip to Canada (12, 25 and 45mm) will do the job nicely, as prime lenses. If I can afford it, just before I go, I'll pick up the 100-300mm by Pansonic for Tapei Zoo. If I can't, I'll just have to make do with the 45mm. Questions: What type of filter should I buy? I know B & W are recommended, but is there any particular type? I.e. UV, Polariser, etc. I'm also looking into getting an ND Filter to shoot at 1.4 on the Panny, or to create a nice ocean blur with the 12mm. But would I need a tripod to garner this effect? If not, what do you recommend? Does anyone know if the Pro will fit my gear before it arrives tomorrow? Massive thank you to all recommendations, everyone here gave great advice and I know that a zoom would have made life easier, but I wanted those two lenses ultimately in the end. My friends will just have to deal with the lens swapping. They'll forgive me! Thanks again!
