Re: Olympus Survey

I don't recall being asked what new lenses I would like.

Thanks guys. I was asked why I had not purchased lenses that I had expressed an interest in with options covering extending the range but I do not recall a free for all "what lens would you like". Perhaps my memory is going again as I was just trying to get it over and done with.

Yes, it was most probably through the Olympus shop.

Yup I got those questions too and some related to another focal length.
They wanted various price points - what would I consider to be too expensive, what would be so cheap I would consider quality compromised etc.
However whoever designed the survey had already decided that 100 would be the minimum in any field and there was a maximum too - they also made the classic mistake of insisting these questions were compulsory so instead of getting no answer they got useless answers in a range plausible to their question setters.
I'm never going to spend massive amounts on PRO lenses to go on my E-M10 Mki so asking me to help them set price points is a waste of their time and mine.
If Olympus are going to focus on PRO lenses at the expense of all other users then I guess I'll not be changing anything in the near future, certainly not brand new
