Curse you Olympus!!!

When I was using M4/3s it used to be really easy to avoid GAS. The SHG lenses were clearly too expensive, and there was a fairly limited range of lenses in the normal and HG range that appealed to me, so I stuck with a 70-300 and 12-60.

Now in M4/3s I find more and more lenses that I want, with very limited justification, simply because they're excellent and, imo, pretty good value (yes, I'm looking at you 75mm, 25mm f1.4 and 35-100).

Technically, buying any of these is sensible, as they do fill gaps in my current lens lineup, but it also seems somewhat likely that I'm looking for photographic situations that would justify purchasing new lenses.


Existing lenses: 8mm fisheye, 12-50, 12-60 (for special occasions) 75-300, 60mm macro.

See. I have no fast lenses. I should buy some of them.'s gear's gear list
