I had a terrible day today, a lot of work that essentially came to nothing, and what’s even more frustrating, it will go on like that tomorrow. But let’s forget about that, let’s talk about real problems 🙂
I’ve been selling Nikon gear for a while now, and the two Panasonic pancakes have been sold as well. So far I’ve sold for about 3500€, even 4000€ when I include the Olympus E-P2, and there is still a potential for about 3000-3400€. What to do with that money? First world problem? You guess.
But really, all that money would not suffice if I wanted to buy every desirable MFT lens currently available. It really shows how good MFT is as a system.
I have contemplated the Voigtländer Nokton 25/0.95, but that is a big, comparatively heavy lens that can only be focused manually and that does not cooperate with the camera at all. I have tried focusing manually with Nikon AI-S lenses mounted via an adapter, and honestly, I don’t like it.
The coming Olympus 17/1.8 is a lens that I will buy, even if reviews are a very mixed bag indeed. I will also need the Panasonic 7-14/4, or there won’t be any more images like this 😀
Olympus is supposed to bring a 40-150/2.8 sometime next year. I guess I’ll want that as well.
As much as I have wished for a 12-35/2.8, now that it is available, I really don’t care for it. I’d probably care for the 35-100/2.8, but if I can get a 40-150/2.8, I’ll gladly take the Olympus. Why should I want a stabilized lens for a stabilized body? Stabilization adds just one more part that can break.
It will be a good idea to save some money for the next body (that one will come for sure), but there is still one lens that I may be interested in, and that is of course the Panaleica 25/1.4. I guess that will be my next purchase. Desirable, available and I have the money. Deadly 😀
Btw, the young man has not made anything new since then. Somehow that makes me nervous 🙂
