    Re: Whats your current favorite lens?

    Another vote for the 14-54 II
    Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

      I've got the 14-54 Mk1, have you ever compared the MkI and MkII versions, I know the II has better CDAF capability and they have rounded the aperture blades, how much difference does this make to images, I think it's meant to have improved the out of focus areas i.e. better bokeh etc, is it noticeable?

        I had both for a short while and carried out a back to back comparison. The differences in sharpness and bokeh were microscopic, almost undetectable IMHO. However, the difference in live view focussing were enormous :-)

          has to be the 9-18 at the moment. Makes me get closer to point of interest and make me look at things differently.

          the 150mm f2 was the favorite while it was briefly on the camera.

            I would say the 12-60 SWD

              My favourite lens is still the ZD 50mm Macro, but the one I have been carrying around and using the most just lately is the 70-300mm.

                Another one for the 70-300mm, very versatile and useful. Have used it on butterflies to Chinook helicopters with great results.

                  14-54 Mk2 and Panasonic 20mm. However, I've just taken delivery of a mZuiko 14-150 for the GH2. I'll have to give it a trial this weekend down in Gloucestershire and see.

                    Probably the 12-60 but have just bought a 25mm pancake and that may be for a little wuntil the 'boy toy' effect wears off.

                      Re: Whats your current favorite lens?

                      My Fav lens is my 50-200mm I love using it for portraits with out of focus backgrounds, but im limited to how much I can use with the distance needed from the subject, so my 12-60mm is my workhorse and on the camera 80% of the time and although I love it too, I prefer the quality of the 50-200

                          The 14-54 for me currently. It's a great compromise between the kit lens and the 12-60.

                            Is it ?

                            I certainly love mine and have therefore not been tempted by the 12-60 (yet)
