Quote: (Pity, the MFT 35-100 is expensive. Looks like a really nice lens.)
it is, on a par with my canon 70-200 F4LIs (and I have read others rate it as good as the mk1 70-200 f2.8). I use it a lot, from studio work through walk-about landscape, archietecture, flowers, sport etc.
For me, a lot of money but well worth it

Quote: Ouch, you got rid of a 35-100 2.0? It must be bad, then. Right, I'll keep that in mind, thanks. (Pity, the MFT 35-100 is expensive. Looks like a really nice lens
For me the main reason was its size, and what it was worth to me if selling, it pretty much covered the cost of the OMD, the kit lens, the 45mm and the grip, the Panasonic 35-100 might look expensive but its half the price of my old lens and its one heck of a lot smaller and lighter.
Some people use them on M4/3 but the focusing can still be pretty slow.
The next generation of the OMD should cope with these lenses better.
Conrad, I think Brian is using the Panasonic 35-100mm, and Paul had the 4/3 version.
I don't see the point in using 4/3 lenses with so many excellent M4/3 lenses available, they would be much bigger than M4/3 also.
Quote: and Paul had the 4/3 version
There is no other version or equivalent of the 4/3 35-100 f2, it is a unique lens and cheap as chips considering it has a constant f2 aperture.
Not even Canon or Nikon could hold a candle to this one.
Relax Paul, you're seeing things that aren't there. I was pointing out to Conrad that you and Brian were talking about 2 different lenses, I was not debating the quality of either.
Lol I`m relaxed Denny
So what will you do with you 60mm, I see Henry`s has a sale on, is that what you all use over there.
I'll probably sell it Paul, and let the funds sit till I decide what I really want.
What's this then?
It`s a cheap manual focus lens, you would be better off with something like the Sigma 19mm.
The 30mm Sigma is closer to the Jackar focal length.
Yes it is, and probably a bit long for indoor use.
Back home they used to call the French Jackie Tars, I wonder if that's where they got the name?
this is a good price.

But Paul has the 19mm Conrad.

Oh, not necessarily. I just got a 45mm and think it's very usable indoors. And it's 50% more focal length than the 30.
