Re: 40-150mm f2.8 Pro lens foot..

Ditto, lens bought June 2018.

I noticed a few days ago that the difference between a 40-150mm f2.8 and same lens with a 1.4x TC was only 50, when the MC-14 costs 249 by itself.

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

Whenever I use my 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC, my OMD EM1 ii gets through batteries in no time, perhaps it's the lens, the type of usage it gets, or a bit of both.


So I'm wondering whether a much larger...
