depends wat is yor fav type of photography.If you only have a kit lens and wanted to get a better lens, which one will you get first?
- Zuiko Digital 14-54mm F2.8-3.5
- Zuiko Digital ED 50mm F2.0 Macro
wat i noticed is, many ppl like to compare equipment.The kit lens is good enough for me. But I'll go for the Macro if I have the $$$.
Precisely.wat i noticed is, many ppl like to compare equipment.
sometimes i can feel their high n mighty attitude.
most important is we njoy ourselves, work within the limitations of our equipment,
which is oredi alot of possibilites.
i have a $200 pinhole camera, that in many occasions, take nicer pictures.
I use the 14-54 a lot for editorial work in the past. Shooting at f5.6 and f8 to get the best sharpness from the lens. This is an impressive lens as compared to other makes. But then again, when you compare this lens to a prime, it definitely pales...
My path went like this. kit lens and I added the 11-22 for the landscape in my travels. Then the 14-45 failed me. So got the 14-54. The sigma 55-200 was really cheap but regretted the purchase.
I don't know about Blu and I don't have the 14-54mm, but the 14-45. That one failed me due to the low, or rather uneven build quality. I had a few problems from the start and Oly changed mine after about 6 months. Make a search and you will find the long discussion about vignetting and quality problems I had. The new one felt better from the start but not as good today. I don't use it very often, so I don't care.Curious to know how the 14-45 failed you? And how 14-54 saved your day.
