Standard zooms

More old classics here: Zuikos 12-60 f2.8-4, 14-35 f2 and both variations of 14-54 are all excellent lenses, the 14-35 about one of the kind... Add Panasonic-Leicas 14-50 versions and "world's best superzoom" Panasonic- Leica 14-150... But the new ones have their strenghts too: Panasonic 12-35 and m.Zuiko 12-40 are more compact and deliver high IQ, maybe even better than the old ones.

And there are also many other choises - even 7 versions of 14-42mm lens, and more if the longer end is freed. There are some pancake-zooms for those wanting something as small as possible, some superzooms for those who don't want to change lenses all the time, some special cinemalenses...

One of the lenses from this group is about a must in every camera bag. For some it may be the only lens they use.
