I just ordered the 800E from Best Buy. This is my first DSLR. I started shooting 3 years ago with the GF1, then I bought the GH2 a year ago. I have the Leica-Elmarit 50mm Macro, the 7-14mm, and the Leica Summilux 25mm. I love all of them.

I shoot landscape, macro, and portraits.

I already ordered the 50mm. I am thinking to order:

1. Either the Nikon 105mm Micro, the Sigma 150mm Macro or the Zeiss 100 Makro-Pannar.

2. Either the 24-120 Nikon for general purpose (traveling) or buy the 85mm 1.8 together with the 35mm 1.8.
3. Either the Nikon 16-35 or 14-24.

What do you think? Am I missing anything? As you can see from my previous lenses, I prefer quality over quantity.

The 35mm f/1.8 is a DX lens...you'll probably want either the f/2 or f/1.4 FX versions.

Please know that your input is much appreciated.
