Hey, I'm really new to photography and just recently purchased the Epl1, with the 14-42mm lens, which I really regret not buying the twin lens kit. I have a few questions here would really appreciate if someone can answer my queries.
1) What in the world are manual lenses? I've looked online and these lenses are so cheap compared to the specific m4/3 ones! Should I get one to try it out? Is manual focusing difficult to learn? By manual focus, does it mean that I would not be able to capture fast moving objects?
Also, if I get one of these lenses, can I still use the art filters along with these lenses? Lastly, is it possible to do without the VF2?
2) What is a good all in one lens? One that is good for taking shallow DOP (pls correct me if I am wrong here) & good zoom which isn't too pricey? I need a good zoom because I do sports and with the 14-42mm lens I can't ever seem to zoom enough. Yet, I would like the achieve the shallow DOP effect when I am out with friends. I have been reading up quite alot and reckon that 14-150mm is rather good? If I happen to get the 14-150mm lens, is my 14-42mm lens redundant now?
40-150mm with mmf2 is good too? Can manual lenses be a substitute? By the way, my budget is < S$300. Pls advice which lens shd I get. Thanks!
3) Should I get a VF2? or will I do fine with this?
Sorry for ignorance! Thanks in advance!
