Andy, does the 150mm f2 have a focus limiter?

From looking at the product photos on the Oly website I think I can see a switch panel underneath the barrel, so I guess it probably has. Did you notice any improvement in AF performance when it was engaged?

Yes, it does. It helps, but only if the lens loses lock and has to hunt - obviously the range in which it then hunts is smaller.
