    For poor light in museums, art galleries and the like, the f/1.8 25mm prime. A tiny little lens that weighs next to nothing, about 4.8 ozs. Pretty sharp.

    Of course, an extra bag was needed ... This Lowepro Format 160 will take either body plus either my 12-100 and nifty "fifty" or my 12-50, 40-150R, 75-300 plus any of the other stuff we all carry. It's still pretty small.

    I already had another backpack type bag that will take my entire mFTs kit - both bodies and 5 lenses. It is still pretty small.

    Andy ( @Bensch) led me astray with his lovely photos of the red pandas at the Melbourne zoo, and I really needed (wanted) a small fast standard prime for low light stuff.

    Plan to order a lens hood for the 75-300 and a self-opening lens cap for my 14-42 EZ pancake zoom in the next day or two.

    Must be toy time after my cardiac atrial ablation ... .

    I'm not sure who led who astray here, I seem to remember someone coming back to Adelaide and ordering more lenses and accessories

    Wasn't too bad, only the 30mm macro and the auto lens cap (managed to avoid purchasing that 12-50 Pro that I was looking at...)

    However, picking up the Panasonic Lumix 100-400 next month, and still have my eye on that Olympus 300 f/4 (perhaps in July for my birthday)

    Off Topic - back in Melbourne for a few days in April...would be great to catch up again
