I'm becoming increasingly amused by the fact that more and more Zuikoholics are 
choosing pretty much the same focal length prime lenses I did, even if some are 
the slower and/or non-macro versions.  Just proves how smart most of us are.  
(In case anyone forgot, I picked the 21/2, 50/2 and 100/2.)

If we could have more than three, I'd put the 35-80/2.8 on the list.

And if we could do non-Zuikos, for sure the 80-200/2.8 Tamron would make the 

Then there's the 135/4.5, but I didn't think we were doing the "real" macro 
lenses.  I've probably taken more pictures with this lens than any other.  Like 
my guns, if you want it, you'll have to take it from my cold, dead hands.
