Multi purpose lens for O-s E420

Postby dingo27mobile » Fri Oct 26, 2012 6:21 pm

Hi there people,
i am searching for some great all purpose lens, something like 15-85 EF-S for Canon, but for olympus E420,

as hard as i am searching, there is not so many choices for this system (i think it is four thirds mount)

so FAR i like
ZUIKO DIGITAL ED SWD 12-60mm F2,8-F4
ZUIKO DIGITAL 14-54mm II F2.8-3.5

but price for them is so high i think it is irrational to buy any lens for this system (1070 vs 634 EUR)

Is there any alternatives? What lens would you reccomend?
Are there options with USM-like silent and fast focus motors?
I'm new to DSLR's, so please be patient and take my opinions with reserve. Thank you : ) Yes, i am Canon man.

I think there is a 14-150 as well, but maybe you can get a used 12-60, then the price should be a lot less, especially because Olympus owners are switching to m4/3 or other brands.

I don't think Oly makes a (standard) 4/3 version of the 14-150mm. There used to be a 14-45mm and 17.5-45mm, but I believe both are discontinued.
