I have a canon equipment with very good lenses. I started out to buy new cheap lenses and got dissapointed. Then I bought used high end lenses and saw the difference. I will never buy a mediocre lens again. I find it important to read the reviews about lenses you intend to buy.
I have made one misstake when it comes to high end lenses an that was to buy the 28-300mm L lens. It is mediocre all over. It is not near the 70-200mm L lens or primes I have.

I have started to use the Micro 4/3 because it is so small and light and have got good reviews. Now I have the 12mm 2.0m lens and the Panasonic 35-100mm and I am happy with these. I am happy to walk around with a light but high quality equipment. BUT though there are many Micro 4/3 lenses I don´t think I have read a very good Review of zoom above 100mm or a fixed lens above 100mm. Are there fixed lenses above 100mm?

I would not hesitate to buy the 75mm olympus or the 60mm macro and maybe not the Panasonic 7-14mm. But that is about all as of now. There must be more of very high IQ lenses

There are many Micro 4/3 lenses but there are far to few very good ones. Olympus and Panasonic must adress this if they want professionals to use them. Unless there are not a good line of lenses you cannot talk about the advantage of Micro 4/3 compared to FF with their many excellent lenses. The possibilities are there for a good Micro 4/3 system but not so many lenses yet of very good IQ. I see a future where i buy the olympus 150mm 2.0 lens. Rave Reviews. Heavy but not as heavy as the Canon counter part and with the camera body still light.


You have high standards.
