    I don't 'need' it but if I ever find a Panasonic Leica Summilux D 25 f1.4 for four thirds, at a fair price, I'd be really tempted.

    Looks like it will become immortal!

    Panasonic/Leica 15mm f/1.7!!! Really want this lens.
  4. Oly 40-150 f2.8...I'm really enjoying the Pan 45-150, but it would be nice to occasionally have that extra lens speed and just a little more sharpness.

    One or the other for me. They would serve the same purpose in my kit!

    40-150 Pro.

    The 35-100 would be a better compliment to the 50-200, but I just can't help longing for the extra reach and close focus distance in one lens.

    The Panasonic 35-100/f2.8 always fills me with a deep lust when I see the shots that come out of it, but that price tag is so far out of the realm of what I can spend on a lens. That one lens alone would cost more than I've spent on all my other native lenses put together (7.5/3.5, 20/1.7, 14-140, 100-300). Sigh...

    Oly 60mm f2.8 macro and 300mm f4.0 super tele with 1.4x teleconverter.
    (Because just having bought the 40-150 f2.8 Pro isn't enough.)

    Edit July 28: Just got a hot price on the TC-14 from Aden Camera and ordered it 1/2 hour ago.
    Edit September 18: Bought a used 60mm f2.8 macro and waiting for it to arrive.
    Still would really like the 300mm f4.0.

    Nokton 17.5 mm f0.95, hard to justify in my particular circumstances, but it's still a hankering.

    Buy used. I got one for a bit more than 50% off retail. It's been through a war almost and has a cigarette smell (hence the 50% off), but optics wise still quite sharp and it took 2 years and a lot of perfume to rid of it of the smoke smell. Perfume from my significant other. :)
