Re: Suitable Lens for AF100

My favourite lens is the Voightlander 25mm f.95. Very fast very good quality. A great normal prime.

A good general lens is the standard Lumix 14-140 though it is slow.

Olympus has some great lenses as well.

Here is a link to a good website with lots of lens recommendations and review links.
Four Thirds | Four Thirds | Products(Lenses)
or for MFT:

You ask a very big question and there will be hundreds of different answers. Using Nikon or Canon adapters the field is huge. And of course if you want Ziess has some fantastic lenses. Both 35mm and cine primes.

I hope this helps a little.

Personally, I wish I had gone with the Zuiko 14-35 f2 and Zuiko 35-100 f2. Great lenses, covers a huge range and very sharp. I will however need the four thirds adapter and lens support.

I would ask your rental clients what lenses they need, rather that an internet forum.
Do they need primes, do they need zooms?
A good set of PL mount prime lenses would be around $30K US. Plus the cost of the PL mount adapter and rails/lens support.

Good Luck!
