I have a chance to buy all of them for $400 canadian, all in good shape. Both the 25 and 45 are of the f/1.8 persuasion. Would these two be a good fit for a Panasonic body ? Are there any problems that I should anticipate ?

Thank you kindly for your help.

What about continuous AF, tracking, face/animal recognition, focus limiter ? I count on those quite a bit. DFD being lens characteristics dependent and all...

Body cap lens is set focus. So none of that applies

s-af speed will be very good. I am not sure about tracking. Maybe someone else can comment

Both those lenses are US$150 used and the body cap should be $50 used. So US$350 would be a fair but not a great price. I am not sure how that would translate to the Canadian buying experience.

hope this helps in someway.

It does help in many good ways. At this instant US$150 translate to CAN$195. The best that I can find here on Kijiji or on Ebay.ca is more like CAN$300 used. Montreal is a fairly large city but surely I could find better if I were living in the US.

Don't even think about it. I'd rather pay more for lenses than get covid 19.
