    Well, the next one one on my list is the 75/1.8. It looks like a great portrait machine.

    Don't have any kit yet, but will be getting these eventually for the GH3:

    7-14mm for weddings, landscapes and volleyball.
    45-175mm PZ (or 35-100mm) for nature and volleyball.
    25mm prime for weddings and street use.

    Should the 12-35mm replace the 25mm prime for my usage?

    For weddings or events I'd say the 12-35 is much more useful. Depends on the way you shoot and the space you have but I've found the 12-35 much more useful for these situations. I still love the PL25, don't get me wrong. It really is a fantastic lens and does very well in low light scenarios. Having a zoom (12-35,35-100) for ever changing variables that is still pretty fast is extremely valuable.

    I've got the 12, 20, and Oly 45, along with the 14-42 and the 75-300. It's a great kit, and I don 't want for much.

    My wish list really only has the Voigtlander 25 (or more likely the announced Schneider 30) to upgrade the 20. Of course, I wouldn't mind the two f2.8 zooms either...

    Still new to μ43 but I'm happy with what I have for now. Unless I discover a new need I'll try to keep the powder dry until the E-M6? E-M7? is released to give me two bodies.

    O 12-50
    O 45
    P 7-14
    P 100-300
    P 14
    P 20

    Would like:
    O 75
    P 25
    P 12-35

    I'll likely get rid of the 12-50, don't feel a great need for a medium telephoto zoom if the 75/1.8 lives up to expectations (I sold my 70-200 for Canon since I much prefer using the 135/2.0 for both size and output). May wait a little longer on the 12-35 to see if Olympus comes up with something nifty in the fast normal zoom category in the next year or so. The pancakes stay primarily for their size advantage.

    I put my current kit in my signature (even though I feel obnoxious about doing that). I'm pretty happy with the primes--especially the O45--and not-at-all excited about the tele zoom.

    At some point, I'd love to have an UWA lens. I'll probably settle for an O9-18 if I can find a good deal on one.

    But what I want most right now is a wide prime. I'd love an O12, but I'll probably settle for a P14.

    Since I'm taking lots of photos of mommy + newborn, I'd like to see what a Sigma 30 could do for me. Sometimes the O45 feels pretty tight, and the P20, too wide. I generally like the 50 mm FOV, but the P25 is relatively pricey and I'm not sure it solves this particular "problem."

    Ideally, I'd just buy the P12-35, but that is *really* NOT in the budget. Maybe I can get busy and "yard sale" a bunch of stuff?

    Right now I only have the 14mm, 45-200, and an old Yashica 50./2.0. I'd like an ultrawide, but I have found that I really need something more normal first. Don't know whether I should pick up a 20 (even though I'd like something a little further away from the 14), be irresponsible with my money and get the 25, or wait to see if Olympus has something up its sleeve.

    Don't let anyone ever tell you that the Oly 9-18mm is "settling." It's a superb lens. And an incredibly useful range.

    My current OM-D kit consists of the following glass:
    Oly - 45 f1.8
    Oly - 75 f1.8
    Pan - 12-35 f2.8
    Pan - 100-300

    I've been thinking about adding the Pan 7-14, maybe later this winter.

    I just got a black OM-D recently my kit consists of:
    • Olympus 12-50
    • Panasonic 14-45
    • Panasonic 20
    • Holga HLW-OP lens-in the mail
    I also spent some money on a bunch of filters: Cokin A ND grad kit, a couple B+W and Hoya polarizers and 3, 6 and 10stop ND. I'd like to improve my landscape photography-these are essentials.

    Budget is blown for the next couple months but I plan on adding:
    Olympus 9-18
    Olympus 45

    If money is no object would also add Pan 12-35 and maybe Pan 25.

    Hmmm I think I have way too many primes.

    • 7.5
    • 12
    • 20 (will probably sell)
    • cv25
    • pl25 (just bought from sale)
    • 45
    • 75
    • 9-18
    • FD50
    • FD50 macro
    • 30 cctv

    Wish to add Oly 17mm f1.8 in future
