Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

For that sort of money I'd rather have a 1200mm f/5.6 L. Or most of the manual focus primes on my 'don't need but want' list.

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

Yebbut they do have another listing which is much more attractively priced.

Leica 14-150 zoom for 4/3 ... 699 is a not unreasonable price.

Especially when the price includes a Digilux 3 (aka Panasonic L-1).

Oh, and did I mention the equally highly rated Leica 14-50?

Oops, nearly forgot the ZD 70-300.

Happy Christmas!

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

The copy of the Leica 14-50 on the L1 at work is very mediocre, it must be a very bad copy given the rave reviews the lens seems to get.

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

While I don't doubt that the lens fitted to the L-1 at your work is the f/2.8 version, David, for the benefit of others, there were two Leica 14-50 zooms. The slower f/3.8 version was the kit lens for the L-10, and would probably deserve the moniker "mediocre" - as if I would know, eh?

I can't yet vouch for my own 14-50/2.8, but the 14-150 was good enough that I replaced the copy I sold here a couple of years ago.

It's the f/2.8 version. It's worse than the copy of the 14-54 I owned that I didn't consider good enough to keep. In the lens defense, the L1 can be signed out by any of the offer staff that need to use it so it doesn't get looked after.

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

I owned a 14-50/f2.8 for a while, but wasn't impressed either. No sharper than the average 14-54, and seemed to miss focus on my Oly bodies. Also, there a some screw inside which are notorious for working loose. If you catch them in time it can be tightened up again, otherwise they disappear deep inside the lens.

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

Is that the price when pictured through a macro lens? Or am I missing something?

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

To be fair, it does look to be a very clean lens.

Re: Christmas treat for the tog who has everything..

it was possibly done on purpose, knowing that the word would get around and they would get loads of visits to the site to look, plus the threads in photo forums like this creating awareness of the company.

It worked too
