My Olympus kit lens 14-42 IIR broke -- probably that ribbon problem (don't take pictures of mini-toads?). Can't use at 30-42mm right now. I was already thinking about a 12mm prime when this happened , probably the Rokinon f2. Anyway, I got to thinking of a different carry-around zoom, like the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 but the Panasonics 12-32 f3.5 and 12-35 f2.8 caught my eye also. I have a E-P5 body which I picked up slightly used so I could try the focus peaking with my old Minolta MC/MD lenses (like the 50mm f1.4). Works nicely most times (not so much in low light) but focus peaking use is probably only going to be about 10% of shooting time. The Olympus 12-40 seems almost as large as my Olympus 40-150 (no, I didn't check -- it's just perception compared to the 14-42), and the Panasonic 12-32 is about as small as the broken lens. The 12-35 seems larger. Two of these are pushing my budget a little but I'll consider reliability comes with a price (no?). What I am currently concerned about is how any of these lenses work on this body with manual focusing. I believe the Olympus has a sliding ring that does direct focus, right? How sturdy is that? But do the Panasonics need a native body to do manual focus or will either of these work manually on the E-P5? Thank you for any comments can you make about any of these lenses? Or another suggestion? No longer made lenses? Or perhaps one of the Panasonic 14-42's?
