Recently picked up a mirroless olympus omd em 10 and am looking for suggestions on lenses under 400 for portrait and walk around travel. If you have photos taken with the suggested lens that would be awesome. Thanks

Hi Krisammad,

Are you looking for primes or a zoom? I only have the 14-42 2.8 and think that covers the range that I like for walk around and portraits. If I was to only do only portraits with the price range you provided, I'd probably look at the 25/1.8 or the 45/1.8 which will give you around a 50 and 85 on a full frame. Check the Olympus website has all the prices so I would start there.

You'll see little, if any IQ difference in the three cameras (E-M10, 10 II, 5 II) since they all use the same sensor.

The E-M10 II isn't weather sealed, but gets you slightly better fps, 5-axis IBIS vs 3-axis, the ability to bracket focus, upgraded OVF, and some ergonomic tweaks. You get access to the electronic shutter, but it's not exactly the greatest (can't use flash, banding with some artificial light, etc) although it will let you shoot silently in good light.

The E-M5 II is weather sealed, but is quite a big price jump for not much of a performance increase over the E-M10 II. It adds weather sealing, slightly faster fps, hi-res shot mode, slightly more advanced 5-axis IBIS (5 stop vs 4), and a fully articulated screen vs the 10 II's flip up/down screen.
