    As a wildlife photographer I agree with Trevor. A 500mm X series ED lens would be very very nice…..

    I agree, a 250mm lens f2.8 = 500mm would be great and also a 60mm macro = 120mm lens as the 45mm = 90mm Leica lens needs to be to close to the subject!

    I found that I got much better resolution out of an old Minolta MD prime 50mm lens attached to my GF2 by an adapter (100mm equivalent in 35mm terms), than any of my Panasonic lenses. Anything that Panasonic can do to improve the performance of their lens range, without going to the very high price of Leica, would be most welcome. I plan on buying one or both of these X brand lenses.

    Hi Stephen. The lens sounds very good and the offer is an excellent one. I’ve got the 45-200 and although it has its limitations I enjoy using it and it is a good lens for the price. However, can I be sure of significantly better IQ which will compensate for the cut in focal length should I take up the offer?

    I like your comments Ian Sims, and would like to know where you can find an adaptor to fit other camera lenses to the G1 camera please.

    I presume the 45-175mm fits the G2. What does it do better than the cheaper

    I have just recieved a G3 4 days ago, I would like more lenses but the prices are somewhat steep, I was wondering has there been an article about compatible lenses for my camera ?
    When I was chatting to one of the sales people in the shop they mentioned that the olympus lenses where compatible and a lot cheaper, but he never said which.
    Could anyone in here tell me more ?
    Thank you in and advance
