    Awesome - Yep the 28 is going to be my first lens. Hope to use it for a while before expanding the kit (trying to keep GAS at bay)!

    As amazing as that outfit is, fighting GAS will be an extreme uphill battle. Might even see it in the next X-Games.

    Like The Flying Camera I have the G2 and the RTS III. I use a TLA 360 for both. Awesome flash. I agree that the 28 is a must have. I had the 21 but sold it because it just wasn't that much better than the 28. It is nice though.

    Damonff - what didnt you like about the 21? I think it's actually the single most amazing lens in a lineup of amazing lenses.

    shouldn't Metz flashes with SCA feet designed for Contax SLRs work on the G2, too?

    could be a cheap, powerful option.

    Kan - yes, they would. Powerful? Yes. Cheap? Maybe. Bad match for the camera style? Probably. Most Metz flashes are pretty big and would overbalance the camera. I don't even like using my TLA 30 on my G2 because it makes the camera so top-heavy it wants to fall on its face even when I'm wearing it around my neck.

    I agree but at $800 vs $400 I had to make a call. I definitely will buy one again some day. The 21 is nicer than I am ready to admit to myself.

    You can also get a Metz 58 af-1 or 2, Pretty good they're!
    And why not get a remote trigger, if using for bounce?
