Graham was seen to be trying hard with the weasel at one point - or maybe they were just making friends?

personally I liked the balance and handling of the new lens; will find the restriction of the 1.4x to this and the coming 300 ie not being able to use it with the 45 or 75, frustrating. using the E-M1 without the latest firmware it still appeared to focus fast - but again the subjects and environment weren't right to assess this properly.

Thanks to the Oly staff and Dave Stevenson for a cracking, informative, day out.
