I wonder if anyone else here has tried the new 14-150 Mk ll lens yet.
Whilst it is not quite in the same league as the Pro lenses at a starting aperture of just F4, it is weatherproof and like the Pro lenses it ships with a lens hood!
I used the older 14-150 for many years and found it capable of making good images in the right light and is also a superb travel lens. The Oly rep. has advised that the new lens has had a complete re-vamp and is now optically improved as well as being fully weatherproof.......again perfect for travelling or just walking about. I traded my old 14-150 for it's replacement, it takes the same size filter.
