    Hey all,
    I'm new to the forum. I'm thinking about doing some night time street photography at bars, festivals, etc. I need something that's basically pocketable and not intimidating. I also want to take great quality photos. Until the 24mm f1.8 came out I wasn't sure what was a good option. 4/3 doesn't seem ideal because of the huge crop factor. With this lens (36mm) and the Fuji's new compact point and shoots in mind is there anything else I should consider?

    The 24/1.8 should be a good choice, although you said pocketable - you'd need a pretty big coat pocket for an NEX camera with this lens.

    Thanks Amin,
    I guess you can't have it all...yet.
