14-42 and 45mm is good enough. When I went there last week I just brought my 24-105 and 50mm. Seldom used 50mm. But my taiwan place is on taichung.
Think darkies will need a summary soon.
We all face this issue bro , especially when we r always worried will we run into a situation where I need this lens and didn't bring it , dang ! And life will most likely turn out that we overpack haha.
The beauty of MFT is that the equipment though of high quality is light , u definitely can bring all the 3 lenses. I'm sure when u reach the hotel u will prob leave 1 or 2 in the room and pack according to your itinerary. It took me a few trips to be confident of what lenses I should bring , nothing wrong with being unsure.
The advice by the bro here to bring an extra sd card is really good advice. Tripod / monopod or flower pot it's really up to oneself. I didn't bring a tripod to Nepal and nearly froze to death taking a night sky long exposure shot but it was only that one time I needed a tripod so it wasn't worth bringing one and dragging it along while trekking.
No matter your choices , keep the 14-42 inside , one can seldom go wrong with the 28-84 focal length and remember that enjoying the trip is more impt that taking photos.
Extremely good point about the quality-weight balance, keith. Absolutely agree.
testing out my 14-42mm lense
went to vivo this evening to get my hand on the extra SD card , travel universal adapter and at the same try out my 40-150mm lense

thank bring 40-150mm cause there are two days staying over at the farm
14-42 & 45
The 14-42 should be good for your general needs.
45 f1.8 will be good for the low light night shots.
And the 40-150 will be useful if you need the range.
Personally I will take 14-42 and 40-150, the only advantage the 45 has in this setup is the big aperture.
still got 26hrs to go before my trip start
Have a good trip. Please post your photos when returned for us to enjoy.
still got one hour to count down before rushing back hm to back up and get ready for my flight tomorrow
