Re: Broken Leica DG 8-18mm

The 50-200 m4/3 range is very useful for many purposes when you’ve got a single camera body, and I used to enjoy my old 4/3 version.

The Panny is significantly lighter than the 40-150 (around 30% by memory) but I am a bit concerned at the smaller aperture at the longer end with their teleconverter. It’s also extremely spendy as introduced.

However, I really like the Oly 40-150 on one body and the 300 on the other for many quickly-changing wildlife and sport opportunities (teleconverted as appropriate), and I suspect I’d miss the shorter end quite often of the Olympus, and more often than benefitting from the Panny zoom at greater range.
