Re: Need Advice . . .What Lens should I get?

Everyone is different. I personally use only "native" lenses, and only primes. I use the 12mm F/2.0, the 25mm F/1.4 and the 45mm F/1.8.

I used adapters, zooms, etc early on with Canon legacy lenses etc, but as a wedding shooter I got tired of that very quickly.

I went from using four GH2/GH1s for weddings to two GH2s and two Canon XA10s and my work looks better, my life is easier, and I wouldn't go back to the old way of shooting, ever. I need auto focus and electronic communication with the camera, period.

Carry or have?
I have around 20 adapters but don't carry them.

I have 3 main lenses I carry, 2 Nikkor lenses and now, the Panny 14-140.

I only need one adapter for that.

Sometimes I also carry a Pentax 50 1.7 for low light or a Canon 50 1.8. Both of those need their own adapters.

I have a batch of other lenses and adapters but they're specialty items.
