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:

    SL_40_a.

    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.

  11. 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.

    Same as anyone else Lumix 20mm although recently I keep mZD 45mm longer than 20mm
