Resident lens

I am curious to know if other members leave a particular lens on a particular camera as "in house" despite having a lot of lenses. It has always been a habit of mine, since the old film days.

I leave the Olympus 17mm f1.8 attached to my Olympus OMD EM5 II, both in sliver.

I have the PenLeica 25mm f1.4 attached to my silver Olympus Pen-F.

Re: Resident lens

Yup,
I leave the 12/60 SWD on my Oly E3, and the new 12/100 Pro on my OMD EM1. ( Used to be the 12:40 Pro )

Re: Resident lens

With my DSLR it's usually either a 50mm prime or the kit zoom as with any of the other most used lenses the camera won't fit in the camera section of the bag!

My MFT kit is usually just the last lens used on each body (one normal one IR), sometimes it seems there's a 75% chance next time I want a particular lens it will be mount on the wrong body & I'll have to change both over...

Re: Resident lens

E-1 no1 = 14-54mm
E-1 no2 = 11-22mm
E-3 = 50-200mm swd
E330 = 35mm macro
EM-5 = 12-50mm.

12-40 on the E-M1 for studio work and the 75-300 on an E-P5, looking out the window at the lake in front of the house.

This sort of question surfaces time and time again. Choice of f/l is dictated by one's interest in subject matter, but 35mm equivalent is a good 'go-to' lens for most stuff.

Re: Resident lens

The standard 12-50mm more or less lives on my E-M5. It's fine for 95% of the shots I take and it's small, light and weather-sealed.

Re: Resident lens

Everything generally lives in my various bags on its own, no lenses attached to bodies. It is the way that I have always stored my kit. Looks like I am in the minority though .

Re: Resident lens

Same as Steambuff. I like having some versatility. I'll change it for particular jobs.

Re: Resident lens

My "resident" lens is the 12-50mm Zuiko. It has the electric zoom which I like, plus a macro setting.

But always carry the 75-300 Zuiko in case a birdy pops up...

Re: Resident lens

On the E-30 its the 14-54 as a regular lens - decent all rounder

As said by a few I also carry a typical few on a day out it's 7-14, 14-54, 50-200 and the rest get used if I want to do something specific

On the E-500 it's the original 14-42 kit lens

That may seem odd, but this camera is the one I use to record the maintenance I am doing on the Land Rover and both camera and lens are well grimy with an oily film except where the light goes in
