    So with my recent return to m43 I started of with the 20mm and 14-45mm. I'm thinking these two will carry me through for a little bit, but I'll admit that my eyes are set in the Oly 45 for street and portrait.

    With that said, what's your next lens and why?

    Not to change the subject, but how do you like your Pany 45-175 om OMD? I am thinking about swapping my 14-140 for it but a little scared of the reviews

    I'm holding out to see if the 12-60 is reality, although the 14-150mm is alluringly cheap lately.

    The 35-100 f2.8 because I have nothing longer than the O45. I recall reading a quote somewhere, supposedly from a Panasonic source, that due to the focal range of the 35-100, it was a significantly less complex lens to design and build and will be stunningly good.....even when compared to its already excellent wider FOV sibling.


    .....either that or the rumored Panasonic Leica 17.5mm f1.4 unobtanium lens !! ;)

    12-35/2.8 on its way from Hong Kong.

    Why? Awesome IQ, great 12mm wide end, useful, versatile range.

    Along with the 7-14, 25/1.4, and soon-to-come 35-100/2.8, this will make up a great 4-lens kit to work from.

    Well, I have a Pany 45/2.8 and Takumar 50/1.4 on the way. I think my next will be the CV 17/0.95 or Oly 75-300. I'm REALLY loving my OM-D!:biggrin:

    But probably will go for a Heliar 15+VF if there's a good deal. Can share it with the other body.

    Got the Oly 45mm/1.8 and the Panny 45-175mm X lens coming this weekend. After that, who knows....got my eye on Oly 75mm, PL 25mm, or maybe even Oly 70-300mm for fun. But those will have to wait till late this year as I've blown enough money on m43 stuff already in the last couple months. :(

    The 7-14mm was my next purchase, but I pulled the trigger last week already, so I don't have a next in line at the moment. However, the following lenses are on my radar screen:

    - Panny 35-100 f/2.8 - quality fast zoom, need I say more?
    - The rumored Oly m4/3 12-60 f/2.8-4.0 - same reason as above.
    - Voigtlander 17.5 f/0.95 - built quality, fast aperture, great for video, and I don't have a prime lens at this focal length, but put off by the high price on a MF lens that will have limited use for me due to the MF
