Default 01 lens

Hi, I bought the Q with the 02 lens and as you know I'm very happy, however is it worth getting the 01 lens as well ?

I see amazon have the 01 for $161US - http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...&condition=all

In my opinion it is absolutely worth it. It's a better lens than the 02, it seems to be a really good focal length for me and I use it all the time. I definitely recommend it, it's sharper than the 02 and has nicer bokeh. The f1.9 is very useful, and since it's sharp wide open, I have a tendency to shoot it that way more than I normally might. I ended up getting a second camera with the 01 because it was cheaper than if I were to buy the 02 lens by itself (which I also wanted). I don't regret getting it that way - I keep the 01 lens on one camera all the time, then swap between the 02 and 06 lens on the other camera.

I see you already pulled the plug on the 01! <grin>

Looking forward to seeing your posts with it!

I went the other way. Got my Q with the 01 and then got the 02 so I could use it as my vacation camera. Going back to the 01 lens now to finish off a series I'm working on . . .

Just an exercise to try to force myself back into learning again . . .
