First post, yay! I recently became a micro four thirds user when my E-520 gave out on me. Instead of replacing with another DSLR I decided to go the m43 route. I was on a fairly tight budget at the time but needed to replace the camera fairly quickly (camera died right before Christmas). I ended up with an E-PM2, which for the most part I'm very pleased with and am convinced I want to stay with the m43 system for a while. There are some things about the camera that take getting used to, like the lack of mechanical controls and overall small size. That being said, I've been able to take some nice images and the pros certainly outweigh the cons. Now that I'm committed to the system it's time to get another lens for it. I currently have the 14-42mm II R as my only native m43 lens. From my 4/3 days I also have the two kit lenses, 50mm Macro, 70-300mm and 9-18mm wide angle. I also have several legacy lenses from my film days, Konica Hexanon AR 50/1.7, 40/1.8 and UC 80-200/4 and a Yashica DSB 28/2.8. The Konica lenses are surprisingly sharp and I have no problem with a fully manual lens. However there are times when I need faster autofocus, like when taking pictures of my kids' sporting events. I originally thought I would be able to get by with my 4/3 lenses but I find the AF very slow and they aren't as easy to manually focus at the old film lenses. I have up to about $1000 to invest although I don't necessarily need to spend it all. I am thinking of either a fast wide angle lens or a longer telephoto. While I have most focal lengths covered with my 4/3 and legacy lenses, I want something that will perform optimally on a micro four thirds camera. And while I did mention AF, I'm also curious about something like the SLR Magic HyperPrime or other super fast wide angle manual focus lenses. So how would you spend my money? One high quality lens? A moderately priced telephoto and a wide angle? Or maybe I should upgrade to a better m4/3 body?
