comment Why is my new Panasonic Lumix 35-100/2.8 lens making strange sounds?
I have hypnotized the business end for several seconds, but seen no sign of the aperture blades moving.

Thank you! Unfortunately the sound is there even in the aperture-priority mode with fixed aperture, in pitch black room with no light changes and during exposure (tried with 2").

comment How do I get a decent zoom lens for my Micro 4/3 camera?
I guess we got spoilt by the fast & cheap primes. If the gap is really that big, I’ll do what you suggest – stick with the prime and maybe save for a good zoom glass (if it’s worth it, given the number of shots I need it for). Thanks!

comment How do I get a decent zoom lens for my Micro 4/3 camera?
I am very happy with the prime and it’s perfect for most of my shots. But sometimes I just can’t get closer to the subject, like on the street or on a concert. I’m not hoping to make perfect pictures from a dark rock concert, but I was hoping for some nice zoomed details on a decently lit classical concert, for example.

comment What would be an inexpensive lens for wedding photography?
I don’t think it’s snobbishness. I think it’s just very easy for a professional to fall into a perfection trap where they forget that even results that they would consider mediocre or plain bad are perfectly tolerable under some circumstances.

comment What would be an inexpensive lens for wedding photography?
It might be helpful to realize that weddings are not always regarded as a huge, has-to-be-perfect project with budget in thousands of dollars. At least where I live a lot of people don't need a professional photographer on their wedding, simply because if the photos aren't perfect, the sky won't fall. If the couples don't insist on having “professional” photos, there's nothing wrong about this situation.
