90-250 f2.8 (Four Thirds) 2150

SHG quality lens I think. Far too expensive for me but a lot less than it normally goes for.

This is a 4/3rds lens for the older (out of production) Olympus E series DSLRs, not the mirrorless micro 4/3rds. It cannot be used with the current OM-D and PEN series cameras without an adapter.

Yes, you need MMF-3 or similar. And autofocus works best on FT lenses if you use an E-M1 body.

It is a fabulous lens - but very heavy on both wallet and shoulders!

I'm told it's considerably better than the (HG) 50-200, which is a wonderful lens in itself (and one I'm lucky enough to own).

The 90-250 is in a class of its own. The only downside is the weight. The IQ is remarkable.

The one lens I'd always wanted. However, things move on and my money would be better spent on m4/3rds lenses now.

And now down to a mere 2k ! :-)

150 reduction in 2 days. At this rate, if we wait nearly 4 weeks it should be pocket money. :-)

The only SHG lens I had no interest in, not long enough and to slow for a lot of my work. I was close to buying the 300mm f/2.8 but decided I couldn't live with losing the extra magnification my 350mm gives me.

Zuiko 350mm f/2.8 - manual focus marvel from the Olympus OM line. Not that I'm jealous or anything......

No, it's an OM Zuiko tele, also f/2.8. Notable as it's finished in white and has an enormous front end!

Sounds a bit like Dolly Parton (who I actually do like and for whom have a good deal of respect)

And another price reduction. Now 1799. They'll get a buyer sooner or later.

It's a monster of a lens - over 3 kg.

(Incidentally, it was perhaps a mistake to put the original price in the thread title. I don't see any way to edit it.)

Re: 90-250 f2.8 (Four Thirds) 2150

I took it out for the first time on the E-M1 Mark II for rugby on Saturday. It is pretty stunning. I think it focuses better than it did on the E-5, and the results are even better. It seems that the older bodies simply didn't get the best out of this lens and the newer bodies with higher resolution are finding more than we have seen before.

It is still a ****** monster, though!
