I have gleened as much info on here and other sites as to be reasonably confident about the following, I am leaning towards Landscape and flora and fauna subjects.

50mm Macro
70-200mm
14-24mm wideangle

Any help or suggestions will be welcome

Regards

Re: Future purchase list....

I have been thinking about either the EC20 or an additional EC14 to get a longer range for my birding photos.

Apart from that, the Oly 300mm prime seems a good bet!

John,

From what I can gather and from personal experience, you cannot stack zd tc's due to the electronics on them as you will lose apature and focus control. Not too bad on the swd lenses as they have true manual focus rather than ' fly by wire ' but you still have to shoot wide open. (shouldn't be too ZD glass, as you know, is sharp enough wide open)

The offer is still there if you fancy trying the 50-200? The extra resolving power and brighter glass will become a godsend as darker days move in.
