The 18-180mm, with its ED elements, should be quite an interesting lens to look out for... me waiting for the 35mm Macro which looks like it will be super sharp.

Ironically, this cheap lens is one of the most highly anticipated of the new lenses.

I really wish that Olympus will release such affordable primes with FOV of say, 17.5mm, 25mm, etc. Will be a throw back to my days of using a Nikon manual SLR with the very nice Nikkor primes. :)

35mm f3.5 magnification 1x (w ex25 @35mm format 4:1)
50mm f2.0 magnification 0.52x (w ex25 @35mm format 2:1)

Any comments, feedback about your preference btw the 2?

from the specs, i believe the new 35mm macro is really meant for brighter outdoor & studio controlled lighting stuffs. not that useful indoors with F3.5, but then again, its up to u to exploit its weakness. :) both r excellent lenses, so the question now is which wud u choose? did i hear both? :devil:

If its cost is significantly lower than the 50mm f/2, I'm definately gonna go for the 35mm. Been waiting for an affordable macro lens for sometime already.

It is being quoted around JYE24000 in Japan. Most likely, this lens will sell below $500 in Singapore.

most sources seems to point to a pre christmas release for this lens. it is expected to be priced similarly with the 14-54mm.

with its range and ED elements, it is looking very interesting to me.

if it can be at least as good as the 40-150mm in terms of optical and image quality, it will make a great combination with the 11-22mm. :thumbsup:

the ZD50-200mm will produce better image quality. u gotta ask yourself how much u want to compromise quality with versatility. my vote definitely goes to ZD 50-200mm. :lovegrin:

Hi Nightpiper,

Don't forget to pamper yourself this X'mas with the 50mm (f 2.0)or the 50-200mm which everyone now notices you have been drooling over for sometime. And after you have bought the 50-200mm, don't forget to alert us so we can help you try it out.:devil: For your info, I noted that Ogisaku in Japan is selling this lens around $1,300 (what do you say about this price? It is droolable? )

Whoa, I did not know the responses are so quick - especially so quick to ask me to "tompang" (for those who don't know Singlish - this means 'by the way help me to carry')
BTW, out of curiosity in view of your responses, what is the street price of this pair of lenses? Not to disappoint, I will not be going to Japan this year probably next spring...
