Do you have a "Pet" lens that stays on your camera?

    I'm curious to see who has what "Pet" lens that lives on your camera.

    Mine is the Voigtlander 40mm F2 SL:


    It knocked the Panny 20mm out of the box a while back.

    I love the look and the feel of my SMC Takumar on the E-P1. Makes me feel like a real photographer despite all the evidence to the contrary.

    What kind of a µ4/3 camera is that? Hmmm... :biggrin:

    My GH2 is loaded by default with the Minolta MD 28/2:

    Started with 17/2.8 cause it was all I had. Then got the 20/1.7. Then went back to 17. Then got the 45/1.8. Then went
    Back to the 17. Now I have the 12/2 and sticking here cause I'm obsessed with the distance scale and it forces me to be brave for street photography. If there was a 17 or 18/1.4 with distance scale.... I'd sell everything else! :)

    I'm probably in the minority, but I usually keep the 14-140mm on my GH2 because it's so versatile. But now that I have the 45mm/f1.8 that might change.

    Oly 9-18 on the Panny GH1,

    Panny 20mm on the Oly E-PL1

    Mostly for how each combination works, partly for the irony.

    I've only had it a week now but I'm hard pressed to take the PL 25mm f1.4 off my E-P3. I got the Oly 45mm f1.8 at the same time, but it's just not grabbing me the same way.

    And yes, the dreaded rattlesnake noise is there but given the performance, I can live with it.

    I rarely leave the house without the GF2+Panny 14/2.5 in one bag/pocket and the Panny 20/1.7 in its little satchel.

    Hi -

    On my GF2, 14 f2.5. The perfect street camera...

    On my EP1, the 4/3 12-60. The perfect out-and-around camera...

    My E30 doesn't get much use these days. However, it usually has the 70-300 on it, if not the Leica Telyt-R 400 f6.3...the perfect gigapan combination. :)

    Still new to cameras with interchangeable lenses so I've been trying them all out but the 12mm seems to be on there the longest so far.
