    I have mostly used smaller primes in the past years. Planning for a big trip later this year, where lens changes will be too much of a hassle, I sourced a zoom solution to go with that and ordered an EM1, 12-40 and 40-150. The former parts arrived, so today I went around with a standard zoom for the first time in what seems like ages. I missed the feel of my relatively small EM5 and 17 that I normally take on walks like this, but the EM1 and 12-40 were more fun to use than I would have thought.

    The one lens I've found most useful for walkarounds and landscapes is the Olympus f1.8 45mm.
    It's cheap , sharp and lightweight so travels everywhere. Perhaps the best value lens I've ever bought.
    I used it for these shots while out walking yesterday ; the camera was an EM10.

    The 45 1.8 indeed is one of my favorites. My regular bag exists of an EM5, the O12, O17, PL25 and O45. The O75 is on order. I love the feel of those smaller primes on the smaller EM5 bodies much more than such a larger EM1 / 12-40 / 40-150 set. But there is a time and place for great zooms as well. I just need to relearn them.

    The soft focus PP you add to some of your photos really works well on this set, I think. Nicely done.

    Kinda cheated here. This was a winter drive, taken out of the car window. But it is with the Olympus 45mm on the E-P5.
    Just typical South Texas winter, cold air mixing with moisture to give us fog, still green grass because it hasn't dipped below freezing yet.
