I'm trying to figure out which lenses to get. I'm planning to buy a Panasonic G3 or GH2 (because I want a viewfinder and the Oly E-M5 would be overkill for my needs). I'd like to cover UWA to about 100mm (200mm EFL). I tend to shoot landscapes, cathedral interiors and general travel. I sometimes shoot close-ups of flowers, etc. For the most part, I shoot with lots of DOF, rather than portraits, street scenes or rapidly moving subjects, so don't really need the speed of primes. 1) UWA. I'm leaning towards the 9-18, as it's smaller and lighter than the 7-14 and very close in optical quality. 2) Longer. - Panasonic 14-140. Would cover the range, but is heavy. People seem to like the optical quality, but I worry about a 10x zoom For close-ups, I could get a close-up lens. From some reports, this combination works well. - 14-42/45 and 45-175 or 45-200. The p14-42 may be preferable. The p14-45 seems better build quality, but only a bit better optical quality. The 14-42 X seems to have issues with blurring at the longer end with medium shutter speeds. I'd like IS for the longer end, so that rules out Olympus lenses (although 12-50 is a nice range) These lenses don't seem great for close-ups. I don't do enough close-up work to justify a native macro. The 45-175 X would be a nice range, but it seems to have blurring issues similar to the 14-42 X That would leave the 45-200, which is a bit heavy Would these two longer lenses work for close-ups, either as is or with a close-up lens? - 14-42 or 12-35 and 35-100 The 35-100 would seem ideal, but it doesn't actually exist and will likely be rather pricey. 3) Primes. I'm well aware of the advantages of primes, but don't usually need the speed (prefer lots of DOF) and I like the flexibility of zooms, especially for landscape work. There's no existing prime longer then 45mm (although a 75mm seems on the horizon, but it would lack IS). I'll likely get a prime, but this is not an immediate priority. I'm somewhat leaning towards the 9-18 and 14-140, but worry about the weight and optical quality of the 14-140. It could be a long wait for the 35-100. Any thoughts, corrections or suggestions would be appreciated.
