The only weather-sealed lens Olympus 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 is too slow! :cry:

I will agree with the slow, but very versatile. Today was taking some family activity shots, noticed an opportunity for a few macro shots, all with the same lens.

It might be "slow" as in small aperture, but it is very fast in AF. :cool:

I am 100% agree with Jacobsen that the point of OM-D is small and compact so I avoid bigger m43 lens.

These primes especially the two Panasonic are amazingly small. All three have stellar IQ and are better than the 14-42 kit zoom significantly. I found myself grabbing these instead of my Canon kit more and more.

but not pocket size small? at times I would like a smaller system that I could grab and go, not have to take a pack of gear

Working and living in Southern California , we go to the beach more often, that when I need the compact weather - sealed camera. The OM-D really shines here :cool:

So i posted this over on the m4/3 forum. But i thought i should share it here too.
I took the kit lens off my omd last night to find a crack in what appears to be a cover over the sensor. The camera is 9 days old. I've shot less than 50 frames with it. Its never been dropped or mistreated and the lens has been on since day one. I'm going to take it back to where i bought it today and ask for a replacement. As far as i'm concerned this is a defective product. Heres hoping that this isn't a bad batch, and that this is a one off occurrence.
Here is the damage

yeah i took it into the local repairer. It looks like it will be covered but it means i will be without it for a while. Its the low past filter that has broken. The sensor appears to be ok.

I need a telephoto that is sharp and has fast AF. Anyone have experience with the Panny 100-300 or Oly 75-300?

To owners of the E-M5...Is there any form of sRAW on the camera? As in, are you able to take RAW shots at a lower megapixel count than 16? I'm this close to pulling the trigger on one and it's the only piece of info I can't find online.

Good question. Never thought about it. A quick check on the camera, and it does not appear so. In fact, it appears one cannot shoot just RAW.

Drat! Looks like I'll just have to get used to JPEG and save RAW for the special things. Thanks for the quick response! :D
