Re: 50-200mm SWD or 40-150mm Pro.

I didn't have both at the same time (and my 50-200 was the NON SWD) but for me there is no doubt that the 40-150 was way better - faster to focus and it always seemed lighter to use.

Re: South Australian Bushfires.

It is such a scary thing to experience - I used to live in south Spain and we had a few close calls - when the air is hot from the fires and black with ash and all around you the land is baked with...

Re: Misty Stone Circle on Bodmin Moor

Phill - office or work lenses (as I have heard then called in a couple of opticians) are a varifocal that only covers a limited range - I need to be able to see things close up as well as up to about...

Re: Misty Stone Circle on Bodmin Moor

Re: 9-18 or 7-14 m4/3?

I guess it depends on what you want to take pictures of inside and how big the room - a flash will only cover a certain area unless you bounce it off a ceiling or wall to spread the light out, which...

Re: 14-140 mm or 14 150 mm lenses - Comments please

For me the major downside to any lens like that would be the maximum aperture.
Yes they are lighter and cheaper but with a slow maximum aperture comes a slower focusing speed and problems in low...

Re: Which pic to win a prize?

Number 3, but do you have the rest of the number 5 on the banner as that would add a lot in my opinion.
