I suspected you would be there! I didn't arrive until 1630 as I'd been out during the day. It's foggy here now so decent pix look unlikely for the time being. It's an awesome piece of kit in the hand.

Re: 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens

Hi Huw -

No, she's still unattached.

Really for my use I need the converter (c'mon Olympus), although this lens seems to have a multitude of uses.
I enjoyed using the 40-150 lens on the SRSmicrosystems open day last weekend.
I'll post few pix over on my roosting territory ft-u as and when.

------------------------------------
Hi David -

I rose early today and was met with the same weather conditions, so I'm still stationary at home.. It is as you say awesome, great build quality and fully equipped ie lens hood and bag.

--------------------------------

Regards. Barr1e

The retractable lens hood is a cunning design.

Re: 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens

Here's another quick grab from today.
Quite a close crop but not 100%.
Shot throught the glazed door in our kitchen with the E-M1.
150 mm at f/2.8

I picked mine up today from LEC Colchester, looking forward to using it when the clouds disappear.

There should be retractable lens hoods for all lenses rather than having to reverse them.

Re: 40-150mm f/2.8 Pro lens

As the weather looks reasonable on Sunday I'm thinking about taking mine for a trip to the British Wildlife Centre. Is anyone else like minded?
