Re: Lens Confusion of GAS

A wider aperture gives a narrower depth of field which might be useful in some situations. The 12-50mm is a pretty good lens, but once it's been through DxO Optics Pro I can see very little difference between it and the ZD 12-60mm. As a result I rarely use the latter because of the size and weight.

I was walking on Cadair Idris on Sunday and met a guy coming the other way who remarked on the size of my E-M5 mkI, seeming genuinely surprised. He said he uses a point-and-shoot when out hiking because his Canon was just too big and heavy!
