    PetaPixel takes a look at the most expensive camera and lens combinations you can buy for each manufacturer through a normal retail outlet. Hasselblad tops out with its H5D-200c medium format DSLR paired with an $8,160 Hasselblad 35-90mm f/4-5.6 HCD lens for a nice consumer friendly price of US$53,160.

    olympuskit.

    Where as on the micro four thirds front the pairing of an Olympus E-M1 ($1,399) with the Olympus 300mm f/2.8 ED lens ($6,499) comes in relatively cheap at US$7,98.

    If that is too much there are more "price friendly" options listed in the blog post :)

    So what is your most expensive camera and lens kit?

    Hi,

    You're missing a digit on the Oly price.

    I'm guessing the 7-14mm Oly is still my most expensive lens.

    I'm still trying to get my dad's 50-200mm back from my nephew, who still never uses it (his only lens on my dad's old E-30 or something like that).

    The 7-14mm f4 is the cheapest of the SHG lenses.

    Not in the same league but my most expensive camera was Hasselblad 553ELX with 60mm lens, it was too long ago to remember the price but I doubt it was more than £1000 and that was brand new. which shows how long ago it was.

    Still my most expensive.
    It looks like it's more (new or used) than the 50-200mm (which I realize now isn't SHG).

    I missed the 'my' bit.
