I've been pondering/thinking about the m43 gear I currently have and what I want in the future, mainly because my wife is already asking for birthday and Christmas ideas. Anyway, I thought I would throw my list out there and see what people think, After all more opinions is always a good thing in my opinion. Before I got into m43, I spent a lot of time talking with 2 semi-professional friends about my interests and what types of shots I like. From those conversations, we determined I'm a details guy, that prefers more documentary shots. In other words, I put more emphasis on sharp bright shots, than I do on things like DOF & boke. My current gear is as follows: Pany G7 - I won't be upgrading till something that shoots 6k with dual is available Pany 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II - I use the kit lens mainly for shooting video in my shop, and eventually it will be dedicated to the shop. Pany 25mm f/1.7 - this is my walking around lens, I love it's sharpness when not wide open, and of course the price. Oly 60mm f/2.8 macro - I absolutely love this lens. It has excellent DOF when near minimal focal distance, and is really sharp. On order: Pany 35-100mm f/4-5.6 - This will be a shop and general use lens until I can afford to replace it with something better, then it will be dedicated to the shop. Hopefully it's as sharp as as all the reviews say it is. Future: I'm not exactly shore what I want to order in the future, as some of the categories are ripe with trade-offs, so I'll break this section up. First i'll prioritize the types of lenses I want to get, and then i'll go over the options. The further down the list they are, the less likely I am to purchase them. Priorities: Fast standard zoom Fast short/medium telephoto zoom Fast standard prime Fast short telephoto prime super telephoto zoom Fast medium telephoto prime Fast wide zoom Fast long telephoto prime Fast wide prime Options: Determining factors: Will dual I.S become more common, and will all lenses be at least partially compatible, thus making lens selection simpler. Will manufactures apply all lens corrections in body regardless of the lens manufacture. Fast standard zoom Pany 12-35mm f/2.8 vs Oly 12-40mm f/2.8 I like that the Pany has OIS, but I like the sharpness of the Oly more. I question how important stabilization is at such shot focal lengths, so today I'd probably grab the Oly. Fast short/medium telephoto zoom Pany 35-100mm f/2.8 vs Oly 40-150mm f/2.8 The Pany has the edge with regards to cost & stabilization. The Oly has better sharpness & range, though it's bigger, heavier and more expensive. If I had to chose today, I'd take the Pany. Mainly because at longer focal lengths I think in lens stabilization is better. Fast standard prime Unless Oly releases a faster f/1.2, the Oly 17mm f/1.8 would be my choice. Fast short telephoto prime This is another difficult one, for me. When I take cost into consideration I'm not sure the Oly 25mm f/1.8 or Pany 25mm f/1.4, are worth the upgrade over my 1.7. However, if Oly releases a super sharp f/1.2, I'd probably grab it. super telephoto zoom The Pany 100-400 seems like the hands down winner here, but the price needs to come down before I would consider it. Fast medium telephoto prime Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2 vs. Pany 42.5mm f/1.7 The Noctricon is faster and has stabilization, but the 1.7 has better sharpness wide open, and is substantially cheaper. If I had to pick today, I'd go with the 1.7. Fast wide zoom IM not sure I'd ever need it, but i'd go with the Oly 7-14mm f/2.8 Fast long telephoto prime I don't really need a dedicated lens at this focal length, as my 60mm macro does an excellent job. however, the Oly 75mm f/1.8 sounds razor sharp. Fast wide prime The new Pany 12mm f/1.4 if its good and well priced. For those of you that made it past the wall of text, what are your thoughts & opinions?
