Micro 4/3 Lens advice please

I must take my hat off to you for going into a camera shop, playing with 3 cameras and coming out empty handed. This is something i would find very hard to do:biggrin:

Whatever you buy i would recommend the MkII 14-42, great lens. I'm sure it would work well on any M4/3 body. The old 14-42 was pretty good also!

Tom, I can certainly recommend the 14-42 mm. It is a solidly made lens and very compact. I have published two photo books of India solely using this lens and the EP-l I owned at the time. It is so good it allowed me to crop quite severely to close in on several images. It’s a great little lens which I still own.
At present I use the Panasonic 45-150mm another cheapie which I cannot fault and use on subject matter similar to you.
Have a look at my post in “Requisite cat“ posts for my latest image to see how it performs.
I also use this as a walkabout.
I hope this helps to narrow down your decision.
