Re: Good News for M4/3

Hi Ted,

This should answer all the critics who felt that there weren't enough quality lenses for M 4/3. The problem with Carl Zeiss products will be the super high prices. Hard to justify a $3900.00 lens for an $800.00 camera body. Sort of like putting a Maserati engine in a VW. Not that it wouldn't work, but it is worth it?

I like your analogy. A 900gr 25/f2.9 lens on an E-P1 would be like stuffing 600 horses into a VW Fox or Polo. Kind of beats the purpose of getting a small car.

Peter.
