Re: Oly 12-60 vs. Oly 14-54 vs. Leica 14-50?

I'm interested in hearing how you like the Leica too, Kevin. I wanted something wider than my Sigma 18-50 f2.8, so I added an Oly 11-22 f2.8-3.5 to complement the Sigma at the wide end. I really like the Oly, but I'm thinking about selling them both to get the Leica.

Cheers,

Bill

It's just my go to lens for quick stuff where I don't plan on many extreme close ups... Running about following people and so forth. basically I just switch it to f3.5-8 and go.

The focus gets a little funny and hitchy, and the stepped aperture isn't really a treat, but I still like the image and it has the nicest zoom of any still lens I've yet tried (I can actually pull slow steady zooms. Whee).

When you talk about the focus getting funny, I assume that's only in auto-mode? I'd really like to see some run 'n gun stuff you shot with this lens- can you share a few scenes with us?

I'll see what I can put together

If you look at SI's recent Behind The Mic clips with Howie Long, that's all 14-50 footage, albeit neither running nor gunning and heavily compressed

Do you have a link to SI's clips? Appreciate it if you could put some run 'n gun together because that's exactly what I would want it for.
