Re: Whats your current favorite lens?

My current fav lens is the 14-54, I like its combination of size, weight, focal length and build quality. It's not the absolute sharpest or best resolving lens in the Zuiko line up but it stills performs very well and produces fine photos.

I'll quite happily carry it around with an E3 or E5 in a shoulder bag and not feel burdened, I even take that combo when doing hill walks.
It also balances beautifully on the E3 / E5 and makes it a cracker combo to shoot with.

My favourite is the 14-54 II & if I could afford other more expensive ones, like the 12-60, it might be that instead, but the 14-54 II does the live view CF when I need it (only on the odd occasion) & isn't too big or heavy.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
