    Since deciding to go with both m43s as well as a full frame setup, what do you guys think about this kit with the black and silver PM2?

    Silver lenses: 20 mk II, 12-32, 45, 40-150, Fisheye. That will all fit in a very small case and I'll still have my $100 focal reducer to use with a 50/1.7. It has pretty much every angle covered at a small size and weight and a good price! And the fact that the PM2 is 25% silver makes the lenses go good with it! :tongue:

    Sounds like a very nice kit! I have 14, 20, 45, 40-150 and 9mm fisheye arriving soon, covers pretty much everything.

    Ah, very similar set up :wink: I actually have the 14 myself which, when I first got, I was very happy with I still like it except that since getting the 12-32 I rarely use it. Before I sell it I need to do some comparisons @14mm. The 14 is obviously faster @14 if I want to blur backgrounds at that FL, however. Hmm, to sell or not to sell. I paid $75 for it but I could get $150 for mint. Well, it's small. And it's only money anyway! lol

    I'd imagine there would be very little difference in IQ or ability to throw backgrounds out of focus... I'd say the extra stop of light gathering would be the only really noticeable difference. Hard to know what to do... I think I'd hang on to the 14 myself.
