There are some amazing deals out there right now on 4/3 lenses. Might be a good time now to pick up some of the extra special lenses - eg, 150/2 - which may jump back in used market price if a MFT body comes out that supports netive focus speeds.

Yes, the 150/2 is a sublime lens... But I don't think I'll ever buy another big lens, the Hexanon 57mm f1.2 is patiently waiting for an m4/3rds body with true focus peaking (the E-M5 is obviously tantalizingly close), and my 4/3rds lenses are in storage.

I do think there will be an m4/3rds body to give native focusing speed with 4/3rds lenses, and as you say, there are some classic lenses going cheap at the moment.

Longer term, with developments going on at the nanoscale, I suspect we'll be seeing completely flat lenses with astounding optical properties... So I won't be 'investing' in any more expensive lenses.
