It looks like you and that lens were made for each other! Your dog makes a brilliant model, too! I think you're flying now with that E-M5!

I had the 20mm but now have the 25mm, of course with the 25mm you have a classic 50 field of view equivalent.
Both are great but ultimately I prefer the 25mm.

I'm quite sure it will or I'd have it myself. I was thinking of Buy it Now option. Cheapest new is about 440 I think, so a substantial saving, but still no rock bottom bargain.

Too may with not enough time to used them. The only bad one amongst them is the one behind the viewfinder.

In mFT anyway, 14 & 20mm pancakes, 7-14mm, 14-140mm, & 100-300mm + 12-50mm which came later with the E-M5. Seems to cover most bases for me.

Well both 14 & 20mm are included in the range of your kit zoom. Why not get a bit more use out of that, and then do a quick analysis of the most common focal length of your keepers. There's one or two programs out there that will read the exif and give you the stats
