Re: Using 50-200 lens with EC20 on E-M1

I sold my EC-20 as I hardly shoot at 800mm, I think there are a few threads on this forum on how to get the best out of this combo.

Nice dog, is it a Kelpie?

Re: Olympus reveals optically stabilised m.Zuiko 300mm f/4 telephoto

Results look really good, but I think still life is the last application I had in mind for a 400mm F2.8 or 300mm F4 prime lens.

For me Oly produce wonderful glass that produce great colours and...

Re: Olympus reveals optically stabilised m.Zuiko 300mm f/4 telephoto

I'm surprised at how heavy it is, 1.5kg, given the latest Nikon 300mm F4 PF is only 750g (and only cost me 1300). I'm sure the Olympus IQ is far superior.

I'll wait for some real life reviews...

Re: 300mm f/4.0

On a slight tangent. I now have a Nikon 300 F4, AF-S, PF. I ordered a metabones adapter on Saturday so I hope to give the 300mm a spin on the EM-1 in the near future.

Re: 300mm f/4.0

Have tried that combo with an E-3 & E-30 when I rented the 150mm F2 from Ian in the past. Great results, I didn't get around to trying it with the EM-1 last time I rented it tho'

Re: MZ 300mm f4.0 launch delayed

Or there is the 4/3 150mm F2 & EC-20 which gives you 300mm F4 with very usable AF and sharpness is still very good.

It's actually 3 lenses in one, 150mm F2, 210 F2.8 with a EC-14 and the above.

Re: MZ 300mm f4.0 launch delayed

Glad I picked up a Nikon 300mm F4 PF at the weekend (weighs 750g). I'm going to try it on my EM-1 with a metabones adapter and see how it goes (MF only I'm afraid).
