I just picked up a Sigma 60 f/2.8 A and absolutely love it. Pretty amazed how sharp it is on the E-PM2, especially for the size

What have you all been using as a favorite?


Canon 5DIII || M5 || Sigma 12-24 II || 24-105 f/4L IS || 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS || 100 f/2.8 L Macro IS || 200 f/2.8L || Sigma 150-600 C || Tamron 45 f/1.8 VC || Sigma 85 f/1.4 || 40 f/2.8 || 10-18 IS || Sigma 17-70 C || 55-250 STM

I have only one M4/3 lens: Olympus M.Zuiko DIGITAL 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO. All the other lenses that I use on my E-M1 are 4/3 lenses using an MMF-3 adaptor. Seriously, though, I am constantly blown away by this lens's quality, versatility and sharpness.

My Fav as well. Fantastic lens. Blows me away just how good it is. I have a M Zuiko 40-150 2.8 PRO on order with the 1.4x TC. I'm praying for similar performance.

My favorite was always the Panny 20mm. Even though it's dreadfully slow, I love the FL and image quality. Cheap too, only about $210 on the used market.

The Pana Leica 25mm is faster and probably just as good or a little beter IQ wise, but the size and FL of the 20 always won me over.

Oly 75mm f/1.8 for me. Loved the 45 until the 75 arrived, its close to on par with my Canon 135.

I got an E-M5 as my travel camera a few months ago... Only bought two lenses so far, the Oly 12-40mm 2.8 and 75mm 1.8. Absolutely love them both. I'd call it a tie so far, as the 12-40 is very useful, but the 75mm is a beast of a lens despite the sometimes awkward mid-tele length.

Really curious about the upcoming Oly 300mm 4.0... And the Panasonic 42.5mm 1.2 as well, although I like my Canon 85mm 1.8 enough that duplicating that FoV isn't a priority right now.

My favorite on my EM1 is the Canon EF 85mm F1.8 with a metabones speed booster. It yields a manually focused (easy with peaking enabled) F1.2 aperture with beautiful results.

Since I only have one lens, my favorite by default is the Olympus M.Zuiko DIGITAL 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO :-)
