I'm happy with my Oly 7-14. The Pany 10-25mm looks even bigger, will be very expensive, and 10mm is not really wide enough on occassions. Might be useful for studio professionals givenm the F1.7 but then there are some nice Oly F1.2 primes if you have the money.

An Oly 150-400mm would be nice for the garden birds and nature reserve hides but I'm guessing it would be hideously expensive and much bigger than the 40-150 PRO and somewhat bigger than the 300mm PRO. The MC20 might fit my budget if I squeeze it hard enough and it would fit in my camera bag.
