Thumbs up Those SHG lenses AGAIN!!!!!

Just been browsing through more of my archived photos and once again the pics taken with the 14-35 and 35-100 SHG lenses are just awesome!! The detail, resolution and just sheer quality of those pics is just amazing. There are several that were taken with an E1 with those lenses and they are just brilliant.
I got rid of them because of the size, weight, bulk and investment but looking back at the sheer quality of those pics, it really seems like it's worth it, no other lens makes me stare at the screen for so long just absorbing the shot, the detail is right there from the very bottom of the pic to the very top, tiny little details that just stand out, the clarity of the shots just has to be seen to be believed.
I'm really considering getting those 2 lenses back and using them with the G3 or if I get it the OM-D.
If Olympus did only one thing right they made the best lenses in the world, well 2 of them anyway.

Sorry rant over but just had to share.

Re: Those SHG lenses AGAIN!!!!!

I am always impressed by my 14-54, and especially the 50mm macro, so I can only guess what the Serious Lenses are like (sigh..)

However before you mount a monster on the G3, you might try the gear simulator so you can get the look of the combination


Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
