Well worth a look.

Hope it has not been posted before.

This is by a long way the most comprehensive review that I have read, it is also very readable and' as one of the 'still waiting brigade' it whets the appetite.

Thanks for posting it Andy.

In days gone by, well before this site John Foster and Andrzej Wrotniak were two two people you could rely on for help with E system cameras.
E mailed questions were answered very quickly and helpfully.

Sadly Wrotniak does not seem to be around anymore but I'm glad Biofos still is.

Thanks for reminding me of these sites, Andy. I used to look at them regularly but with the ditching of the 4/3rd line I drifted away. I knew the Wrotniak site had stopped being updated a long while ago, but what has actually happened to Andrzej I don't know.

That was a great link thanks Andy. Yes Ian I wondered what happened to Andrzej too.

Thanks Andy,

This is a very worthwhile read and while I have been happy to stick with my Mu34rd lenses, I am wondering if going forward I should consider an affordable longer 4/3rd zoom to replace my Pany 100-300 for airshow work.

I have tried this lens with the EM-1 set to AFC-Tracking for cable tow and it worked well but I am interested to see how 4/3rd lenses perform as they default to PDAF.

I will wait and see as I am sure some who has both types will do compraison testing ( I know this review covered some but they were static object rather than AFC-T use).

Interesting :) but why do they post "Cheapest Price" which in the article they state much lower price ? weird :(
