Re: Advice on lenses

Well, the 14-42 kit lens as rather good, and there is a strong argument for sticking with it. However if you get the borrow of a 14-54 which comes from the "pro" lens range, you will be most impressed by the build quality. Further (if you are pixel peeper) you will also be impressed by how sharp it is.

So, its heavier, larger and a whole lot more expensive than the 14-42, but its a very good lens indeed.

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
