Time for some higher-end lenses for the E-P1/G1?
Aug 26, 2009

I like the G1, but it's kit lens is no match for the 16-85mm on my Nikon. The Nikon lens is about $600 and at f7.1 is virtually perfect edge to edge. The 14-45mm G1 kit lens is much cheaper of course, but can't match the Nikon, even stopped down. The 14-140mm is too long to be a great lens, even though it costs $1000. We should start seeing some better quality medium zooms for these cameras at some point. Right now, the option is a 4/3rds to micro 4/3rds converter and an Olympus 12-60mm.
