    Default Omd em 10 kit lenses

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the micro four thirds world having recently upgraded from a point and shoot camera, my omd em10 came with the 14-42mm and 40-150mm kit lenses and my question might be a silly question for you but I'll ask anyway, which lens am I better off using for everyday/holiday snaps? Is the 14-42mm an all rounder for these type of photos and the 40-150mm more for panoramic and distance photography? As you can tell by by question its all very new to me but I'm excited to learn so much more.
    Thanks

    Yes, the 14-42mm would be considered the al rounder. Basically the 14-42mm gives a wider view and the 40-150mm a narrower view. The sample photos on the Olympus web site gives a good idea of their capability. For the 14-42mm, see http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/lens...-5-5-6-ii.html . For the 40-150mm, see http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/lens...-5-5-6-ii.html . Use the 14-42mm for landscapes and family shots and the 40-150mm for close-ups and it gives a particularly good look for portraits.
