Well my 40-150mm Olympus is finally in my hands, for the past week... no teleconverter though, someone had pre ordered ahead of me, and as the kits are in shorter supply. Mine is still on back order, same deal when it comes in, but I opted to take the lens for a full trade when the kit comes in.
So how is it? Heavier than I thought but a fine piece of kit... It was on my EM-1 that night, sans tripod mount... not needed for me.
Some great shots, very flexible lens and quality is equal to the best Nikkor VR I ever owned. First things first... a long lens shootout. As I already have the Lumix 35-100mm X lens, and the basic Lumix 14-140mm travel lens, I took the three out yesterday while the dog had his run, to my favourite decommissioned power station at Swanbank.
All shot taken with the OIS off (in favour of the Olympus 5 Axis), on the Lumix lenses, and as much as possible same or manual settings for comparison shots. Only minor exposure adjustments for clarity.
Any comments would be welcome....
