  • Ouch

    I've worked hard to be this grumpy. It hasn't been easy at times but it's worth it.

    Re: Ouch

    So with the 1.4 TC it's about 190mm at the long end and f3.5 wide open and big and heavy. Think I'll stick with my 50-200 which is also f3.5 at 200mm. I know it will focus quicker but I can live with the old lens with great image quality.

    Was always going to be expensive.

        Nearly ..... it's 210mm and f4

        Not bad value with the bundled converter.

          Cor yeah my maths was a bit off, so it's even slower than I thought.

          Won't be getting one now

          Still feel it's overpriced when you consider how much 50-200mm were when they came out, both the original and SWD.

            Any indication of the weight, if significantly lighter than a 50-200 plus MMF3 then that would improve the popularity

            In a situation where there was sufficient light / ISO how much better will it be than the existing 40 - 150 lens (not really answerable as we have not seen the big lens)

              Do you think SWIMBO would be safer with my HWIMBO as a pair safety in numbers

                Derek, are you referring to the 4/3 E-5 40-150 lens ?

                and have you used it with the ONE ? if so with good or excellent results ?

                  Andy - if you price the 50-200, converter and MMF-3 Adapter at WEX it comes out at £8 more than the new lens and converter and the new lens price will fall in time.

                  Derek - new lens is 880g, 50-200 is 995g

                    Was going to put my 50-200 and 1.4 up for sale but having seen the price of the new lens I will be keeping them for quite a while.

                        Andy,
                        New lens without tripod mount = 760g - this is equivalent condition to the weight you cited for the 50-200.

                          But IF it is better than the £1900, (WEX) SHG 35-100mm F2 then it is a reasonable price, no?

                            Look forward to lunch - good luck with the move

                            re the lens I am referring to the m4/3 40-150 lenses, the existing 40-150 is relatively cheap but medium max aperture comparing it to the yet to be seen new m4/3 40-150

                            I shall have to watch the B&H website as I will be trans-ponded in October.
