    Cheap autofocus Primes for Micro 4/3?

    Hi, all.

    I know that Nikon, Canon, and others have autofocus 50mm Prime lenses for around $100. Are there any options like this for Micro 4/3 cams yet? I keep dropping into Lens Hero once every couple months, to check what lenses are available for my cam, but there never is anything.

    Thanks!

    There are Sigma 19mm and 30mm primes available. I know they recently were on sale for $100 each, but the price may have gone back to near the original $200. You should also be able to get a grey market Panasonic 14mm for about $140 or less from a reliable eBay dealer (stripped from a camera kit), or else used. I think that about sums it up. The only autofocus prime available new for near $100 that I know of is the 50mm f/1.8 for Canon and Nikon, and they are cheap because the design is very old and and very plastic.

    Thanks. It seems that none of these lenses exceed F2.8. That's 2x better light intake & bokeh than my F3.5, but, for the same price, the larger lens mounts offer F1.8, which is another 2x.
