Panasonic future lenses POLL what do you want? I want 75mm 1.2 macro

So Panasonic apparently just announced a 30mm 2.8 macro lens. It seems decent on paper. 

 

What I would like to see is a pro level 50,60 or 75mm 1.2 weather sealed Leica 42.5 quality macro lens with image stabilization (since panasonic does not have inbuilt stabilization)

 

This kind of lens would work double duty as a portrait lens and as a macro lens. 

 

 

The MFT world is growing nicely. This new pro level 40-150mm 2.8 zoom from Olympus seems honestly good enough. Likewise I'm happy to hear about the upcoming 300 F4 prime from Olympus. 

 

What kind of lenses would you like to see by Panasonic? 

 

 

On a secondary needs basis I would like to see 14Bit Raw images support for GH4. To make it more Pro photography oriented. 12 vs 14 bit RAW's are very important for professional photography needs.

 

on my short list there are

 

300mm 2.8 with image stabilization or pro level 100-300 2.8 with IS.  Perhaps 400mm f4 with IS.

I know you guys are mainly video but I like using mine for photography as well, I think with GH4 new AF it could really be a competent bird in flight or sports camera if it had a pro-level lens at a longer focal length with a fast AF motor. I would vote for an Lumix G Vario X 100-300mm F4 with stabilization & weather proofing.    Maybe throw in a 600mm F5.6 prime.

Ooo, it's the wishful thinking thread! 200/2.8 for me please. Panasonic were so close with that 150/2.8.

If you believe the murmurings, Panasonic apparently had that 100-300/4 but killed its development.

Yeah Panasonic rep confirmed that the 300mm wasn't happening & they wanted to go in favor of making compact standard zooms for the GM1.  The 150mm f2.8 is still suppose to happen, too short for wildlife or birds but a good focal length for sports & action.   I think they are making a mistake though abandoning the pro 300mm zoom, they could of won over a lot of wildlife photographers who are tired of carrying a $8k bazooka lens into the forest.

When talking about birding/wildlife lenses a 250mm 2.8 with IS might work as well.

Make it have focus via remote extension cord for documentary wildlife video shooting. Think about it beeing able to focus as a one man band.

 

I would allso welcome a 12-35 ultra pro edition with f. 2.0 LIke Inazuma suggested. After all the DOF of the 12-35 2.8 is far from FF equivalent. Perhaps make it 11-35  2.0 (this would bode well for 4K crop of GH4)

      For sale a rare 1937 Leitz Hektor Rapid 27mm f1.4 cinema lens (s/n 417161) for the Bolex H16 cinema camera. The lens covers full m43 sensor with a little vignetting and soft corners, great for cropped sensor of BMPCC, BMMCC, BMPCC4K (S16 mode). Examples of photos taken on a Lumix GX800 camera.
      The condition for its age is excellent: the case is clean with little signs of use, there are some dust and a bubble inside (this is typical of pre-war Leitz lenses), I did not notice the effect on the picture. The lens has been professionally serviced. A complete disassembly, cleaning and lubrication was carried out. The focus and aperture rings spin smoothly and effortlessly. The diaphragm is clean, 10 blades. The kit includes the original hood, front cap and c-mount adapter - m43 (MFT) with rear cap. There is focus on infinity. I will send the lens by mail worldwide.
      I shot this video with this lens Leitz Hektor Rapid 2.7cm f/1.4 on a Lumix GX800 camera: https://youtu.be/uIRKYGp6tg8

      Hi everyone, first of all I am based in France and I can ship anywhere in the EU.
      I am one of the earliest adopters of the Samsung NX1 in France, I remember ordering one the day Andrew posted his first video with the NX1. I then went to get an NX500 when it came out too. This has been my primary system since then so it will have signs of wear as I have used it a lot. And I can also state that this thing works flawlessly. It is amazing, I have played with almost every other camera out there and nothing gives as much pleasure as this one. That being said it it now time for me to part with it so here it is :
      Pictures : https://ibb.co/album/detwva
       
      Cameras  :
      Samsung NX1 + 2 batteries 
      Samsung NX500 + 3 batteries
       
      Lenses :
      Samsung :
      20mm F2.8 (perfect for gimbal work)
      45mm F1.8 (so light and fast !)
      85mm F1.4 (my favorite for portrait work)
      16-50mm S F2-2.8 (the best all rounder lens I have used !)
      50-200mm F4-5.6 (not my favorite, but useful and super light)
      Lensbaby :
      56mm F1.6 Macro Lensbaby Velvet 56 (it's a full manual lens with an amazing creamy / dreamy feeling when completely open. Past F4 it starts to be very sharp. It's also a great macro lens !)
       
      Accessories :
      External NX battery charger.
       
      M mount adaptor : This thing is insane : you can mount Leica M lenses on the Samsung NX1. It's crazy.
       
      Ok so now the price : This is about 5.000€ worth of equipment when I bought it. I am selling for 2000€ (not negociating).
      I have not considered yet breaking appart the lot but maybe I will, so if you are interested in several items please let me know. If it's just for one lens, I will probably won't do it sorry
