What's on everyone's buy list? Vote and comment!
EPM2 or GX1
boat tickets to several islands around new zealand to go shooting.
Based on announcements and theoretical future lenses, the eventual plan:
Out: Oly 45/1.8, Panny 20/1.7
In: Oly 17/1.8, Panny 150/2.8, maybe the 42.5/1.2, but probably the Oly 75/1.8. Maybe the 12-35
I pre-ordered a silver E-PM2.
No other definite purchases for me, but I'll take a hard look at several of the others when they are released.
Schneider 30mm....whenever that might be.
Olympus 60mm Macro
Panasonic 12 - 35 when they drop a little further in price
35-100mm and wait for the next OMD body
Pre-ordered the lens cap lens today.
Didn't see a 200mm prime, so I'll stick with the 45-200 zoom for now.
Nothing on the list but I am far from all set.
Hopefully, an extended trip to Central and South America. I'll worry about cameras and lenses after I figure out how to pay for that!
Nothing new, but with the non-appearance of the rumored Oly 25mm I decided to pick up a copy of the PL 25/1.4 to compare with my trusty 20/1.7
im thinking the same thing....do you know whats the price range for it? in between new and used?.
I'm kinda all set. Although... a silver E-PM2 with a snazzy leather half case would look rather sweet with my Jupiter-3... hmm...
I'm big into macro right now... Need that Oly 60mm 2.8 if it's really good the 45mm my be headed out and I may also add the 17mm 1.8.
That 35-100mm would be perfect for me, but I am afraid I will have to save up a bit longer for it and the 14-140 will have to get me through a little longer... Eventually I may want to replace my GF2 with something, maybe the EPM2, but I am not in a hurry. Also curiously observing the GH3 and the OM-D, both are very tempting but I think I will hang on to my GH2 a little longer. Of course, if the GH3 had IBIS I would buy it and be done with it for years to come So, no immediate purchases.
This list assumes everyone will be buying the latest & greatest toys. How about just holding out for a price drop on the now-not-quite-so-current-but-still-perfectly-adequate EP3? :smile:
You need a choice for "wait and see."
I'm possibly interested in the GH3. Slightly interested in the 35-100. But until I see more details about performance, I'm not going to buy anything.
I'm going to pre-order the Olympus 60mm Macro. It looks like it could be a winner at the retail price.
The 35-100, 17/1.8, 42.5 are also interesting. I was thinking of ditching my Oly 45 for the 75, but that 42.5 f/1.2 might change things.. Interesting to see what the prices on the future lenses will be.
Seriously thinking about the E-PL5 to replace my E-PL1 and eventually the 60mm macro
Amazon warehouse deal on E-PL5 or E-PM2 to replace my second body (GX-1).
Not in a hurry to do so.
Oh, and the 15mm caplensthingamajig.
