Micro 4/3rds Lens Kits for Travel Photography

Two-Lens Zoom Kits

If you expand your kit to two zooms, then you can get incredible range while still staying relatively small. You’ll have to change lenses on occasion, though; make sure you have a camera bag (or large pocket) to carry your extra lens.

Pair the Olympus 12-45 f/4 PRO (left) with the 40-150mm f/4 PRO and you have an agile kit that spans a 24-300mm equivalent range.
  • 12-45mm f/4.0 PRO + Olympus 40-150mm f/4 PRO
    • Continuous range from 24-300mm equivalent in two lightweight lenses
    • Kit weight: 723g / 1.59lb
  • 8-25mm f/4 PRO + 12-100mm f/4 PRO
    • Equivalent to 16-200mm kit in two lenses

  1. Heading out for a few week road trip up the West Coast, photography not the prime mover. Similar thoughts on alternatives, after packing a few combinations, decided to go very light: Panasonic 9mm, Panasonic 15mm 1.7 and Panasonic 14-140 3.5-5.6. Simplifies the changing lenses issue except when needing ultra-wide or low light. It is about weight and convenience. The 14-140 is quite good for a super-zoom and will cover the majority of my needs.

  2. I’m taking my Olympus OM-5 on a trip to Montana, where I’ll be in meetings most of the time, maybe some “city” walking, but I do want to get to Glacier National Park for a few hours, so I’m packing my Olympus 14-150.
