Olympus E30

Hi all,

Looking at the lenses that are available with say, SRS Microsystems for the new E30, can anyone suggest which would be the best option?

14-54mm 11, 12-30mm or the 14-42mm?

Your opinions would be appreciated!

Re: Olympus E30

From a quaility point of view probably the 12-60 it also has the best range and the faster SWD focus motor, but it is nt optimised for the live view autofocus mode. The 14-54 has just been re-launched as a mkII with closer focusing and optimised live view focusing. The 14-42 is very compact but has less range and is slower giving a darker view but is optimised for live view. I guess depending on your budget the first 2 should best suit the E-30, personally I would go for the extra range of the 12-60.
