    If sales go well then it's the PL45 for me, a worthy bed fellow to my beloved PL25 (they can't mate outside their species :wink:).

    If I fail to achieve the bottom dollar then it's the 45/1.8....and probably the 14mm - with either - just so I have something wide in the bag!

    Ummm...now I think it only right that the OP cough up a little something....:wink:

    I just bought the Canon New F-1 with AE Power Winder FN and three focusing screens for average, partial and spot metering :biggrin: Guess the next purchase for me is the Canon FDn 20/2.8 lens.

    Bright zoom. First mirrorless format to make one wins my business.

    (if that sounds a little depressed, Believe it - I'm getting tired of waiting on Panasonic)

    I have both.. tough choice.. I like them both.. but the PL25/1.4 is the clear winner IMHO.. Rookie opinion though.. getting ready to sell 20/1.7.. I like FOV better on PL25..

    My plan is to get a GX1 in January or February. Still debating and researching what lenses to get with it. I will get a Nikon adaptor so I can use all my Legacy Nikkors.

    At work I am working up a proposal for two AF100 video cameras to replace two Canon XL1s that are just about dead. Not sure what all lenses yet except that we will need the 100-300mm to reach across the room where we film.

    Hmmmm... I've kinda got my eye on one of those Pentacon 135mm f/2.8 presets. It would be a cheap but frivolous purchase since I have my Zeiss Sonnar 135mm f/2.8.

    I wouldn't mind a Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 Nokton. I'd prefer the Leica 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux, but that's way out of my price range, lol.

    I would also be interested in getting a Zuiko 150mm f/2, Zuiko 300mm f/2.8, or Zuiko 35-100mm f/2.

    I would also be very interested in an OM Zuiko 250mm f/2, if I could find one. I highly doubt I'd be able to find one when I have the funds, though.

    For bodies, I wouldn't mind picking up an E-5 to replace my E-3 or an E-P3 to replace my E-PL2. For now though I'm really loving the combination of the E-PL2 and E-PM1.

    I could also use some new muslin and studio strobes.
  14. I'm debating whether an E-PM1 would be a worthy successor to the E-PL1; until I hold one I won't know. Also still searching for a well-priced Canon 450D to sidegrade from my 500D.

    I don't plan to buy a new camera any time in the near future. I will have one of my G2s converted for IR photography, though.

    Next lens purchase will probably be the 12-35mm Panny zoom, if it's 2.8 or faster throughout the range.

    In my opinion, the E-PM1 is the perfect successor to the E-PL1. :)  Lose a couple buttons but gain a turn dial, but in a much slimmer, stylish form with much quicker performance.

    I'm in the process of rearranging my kit for a 6-month backpacking trip next year, so some things will go and some new ones will be added...

    - m.ZD 45/f1.8
    - second GH2 (likely second hand, unless the new prices continue to drop...)

    I owned that camera and winder once, and the lens. Not the focusing screens though. It was one of the finest 35mm cameras ever made, I think.
