So... If any of you have been reading my posts over the last week or so, you will know that due to an unfortunate family crisis, I almost had to sell all of my gear to help with a big financial need. Things looked up for a minute and I thought I wouldn't have to sell anything. However, while my direct close family is okay, not everyone came out on top and I felt like helping. So over the last week or so I have secretly and slowly sold my 25/1.4 and eventually (today) my 75/1.8. Another topic you may have noticed in my posts, is a dear dear friend asking for recommendation on lenses and what to buy and what not. Turns out my wife told him I was selling my lenses to help and was hoping to eventually rebuild my kit (I was left with my OM-D and a CCTV MF lens) and he was asking me all these questions because they were "plotting". I've always been there for this friend and I suppose today he was there for me because I came home to THIS!!!!!! A brand new Black Oly 45/1.8 and a brand new Pany 12-35/2.8: Quick and blurry phone picture — shaking with excitement! So I'm writing this post to say thank you to all the people that go out of their way to make other happy. I sure am a happy camper! I was just telling him yesterday after posting this thread (https://www.mu-43.com/f38/friend-s-ask-recommendation-stumped-me-48514/) that a 12-35 and 75 (or 45 since its MUCH cheaper) would be the dream combo for my uses. Edit: Sorry this post turned out to be much bigger than I expected I am just so happy!!
