1.How much in an expensive lens??

My most expensive lens to date was the Olympus 7-14mm for four thirds and I had a couple others up around 100,000yen. I'd could go a bit higher, up to 200,000 now. With the way my photography is moving, I don't shoot telephotos or zooms much, so I don't see myself actually buying something in this price range though.

2. What the next new lens for m43 you really want at the right price??

I'd like a smaller 25mm lens and one that doesn't make as much noise on the E-M5. (Last time I tried one it was still noisy, maybe it wasn't on the newest firmware?). I'd also like it to have a close focusing distance or macro. A 25mm f2 or f2.8 macro.

The other would be a compact wide prime. 10mm f2.8 or so with sharp corners.

I've moved to the Oly 17mm f1.8 most of the time now, but a replacement for the Panasonic 20mm would be most welcome.

I'm not going to set a price. Let the manufacturers charge what they need to, and I'll make a purchasing decision on that. I don't really think m43s lenses are expensive, but I don't really think we can consumers understand what makes a lens expensive. I'm not really comfortable saying a lens is too expensive on an absolute basis. (Maybe too expensive for me)
