Hi.

 

I have an Olympus EM10 and 2 primes, the 20mm and 45mm.

 

I need to start taking shots of interiors for a property rental agency.

 

Both these lenses are not wide enough.

 

Could anyone recommend a 'not too expensive' wider lens that would do the job?

 

Many thanks.

In terms of native lens you are looking at Olympus or more expensive Panasonic options I suspect. Sigma have a low cost option but it is 19 mm.  I would be looking around for a second-hand Olympus lens in a suitable focal length.

I should think you could find a used Olympus 4/3 (not m4/3) 9-18mm lens pretty cheap. It might not focus as quickly as a m4/3 one, but it would be just as sharp.

Since I wrote the post above, I have tested the 4/3 9-18 on a m4/3 camera (both the GM5 and the E-M10). Unfortunately, it is NOT sharp at all near the edge of the frame. It is pretty sharp in the center, but as you go towards the edge it quickly becomes VERY blurry. I also have a m4/3 9-18 lens, and it is nicely sharp even at the edge. Soooo, forget buying an old 4/3 9-18 for use on a m4/3 body, IMHO.
