looking forward to your five page report (minimum) with pictures.... ;) I am still holding out but will admit to trying the lens and converter in Dublin last week. Good price with the Euro being low at the minute.

You should have had it sent to me and I would have kept it company until Wednesday :D

You'll love the lens/converter combination.

I have these on my E-M1 90% of the time and rarely need to use anything else.

I look forward to seeing the pics you produce with them.

Hurray I'm back on terra firma after 3 weeks offshore, got the lens and also the new ball head I bought for my monopod /tripod.:D

I must admit the lens isn't as big as I imagined, it's not a small lens but not the gargantuan thing it's been made out to be so looking forward to getting out and using it.
It fits very nicely on the GH-3 I've not been able to sell so the GH-3 may get a stay of execution.

The ball head I bought I'm well impressed with, I bought it off Amazon for about 17 inc delivery, it's labelled "Beike" here a douself BK-03 Camera Tripod Ball Head Ballhead with: Amazon.co.uk: Camera & Photo@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41nvmBTtHkL.@@AMEPARAM@@41nvmBTtHkL to it, it's well made, great for monopod and tripods and it very functional, the other ones I was looking at at SRS and WEX were all around the 40-60 mark and when I saw this on Amazon for 12.99 (+ del) I decided to try it and so far think it's a great bargain.
