We closed the latest MicroFourThirds zoom lens poll and it is time to make a serious summary.
Prime lenses poll (click here to see the final results):
The three most voted prime lenses have been the 25mm f/1.4 or faster (42%, 772 Votes) the 12mm f/2.8 or above (tiny lens) (27%, 498 Votes) and the 17mm f/1.4 (26%, 475 Votes).
If you group the lenses by focal lenght we have the 25mm (982 votes) the 12mm (823 votes) and the 17mm (475 votes) as most voted focal lenghts.
it seems people needs fast lenses. An exception is the 12mm 2.8 lens which should be a perfect portable landscape photography lens. In summary wide to normal lenses are the most requested lenses.
