40-150 swap anyone?

I have the older version of this lens and would like to do a straight swap for the newer version.

I only use it over the 50-200 when I want to travel light, so I am willing to sacrifice speed and build quality for weight savings.

I still have the original box somewhere.

If anyone is interested PM me.

Re: 40-150 swap anyone?

I've also got both lenses, but would never choose the 40-150mm over the 50-200mm. I'd much rather endure the extra weight of the 50-200, than find myself saying when I look at an image taken with the 40-150 'I wish I'd taken that with the 50-200 for its extra range, and particularly quality'!

I agree, but better a poor shot than no shot at all.
I find the 50-200 is too heavy to have in the bag on a long walk on the off chance that I'll need it. In general I take the 14-54 or 12-60 and no telephoto and end up missing shots as a result.

Re: 40-150 swap anyone?

I just want to make it clear, I have the 40-150mm f3.5-4.5 and want to swap it for the f4-5.6 version.
I am not giving up the 50-200. No way.

Stephen if yours is in good condition and includes the lens hood I'd consider it.

Re: 40-150 swap anyone?

Sounds like a swap that suits both parties. Paul is getting what many would consider to be the better lens (I love mine) and Stephen is getting a super small and light alternative to the 50-200mm for long walks. It's great when a deal like this works out.

Now, I just need to find someone who will swap a 50-200mm for my 70-300mm, a 7-14mm for my 9-18mm, or a 14-35mm for my 14-54mm.

Oh, and if anyone regrets getting an E-5 I'm up for swapping it for my E-3!
