@PeHa Here are my shots using the 50-200 SWD and EC-20
Great write up on your usage of the various lens and teleconvertors. Not everyone will have the same shooting habits are you, and I'm sure 100-400 will suit some others better.
A little too close to gators for my comfort, 'gator bait' is a good title for those photos
My EC-20 is in the mail. I can't wait !
I love your Snowy Egret. You must have great technique and a pleasantly sharp 50-200mm.
Nice photos and great article. i've been wondering how the 50-200 performs.
I think you should use a satellite for those gator shots.
Ronnie, I really appreciate the time and work you put into this. I’ve had the ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 50-200mm SWD since 2009 but could never find a compulsive enough review that I felt I could trust and purchase the EC-20.
Now on the other hand, I don’t know whether to thank you, or cuss you!
For years I’ve been debating about alternatives and many reviews of the 50-200mm and EC-20 were mixed. For several reasons a super telephoto prime does not fit into my desires/needs. So when the Olympus 300mm f/4 was announced with the $2500 price I knew it was not for me. OTH the Panasonic Lumix Leica Vario-Elmar 100-400mm F/4-6.3 should meet my needs at a price that for a hobby (vs business expense) lens I can live with. So I jumped on the pre-order the day it was announced!
Initially I had intended to buy the 100-400mm and sell the 50-200. About two weeks ago I had a job where the 100-400mm would not have sufficed, so now the 50-200mm is destined to stay in my kit.
And I had not seen this thread until a few days ago. So now you have caused me much angst in whether to wait the 100-400mm or buy the EC-20.
So thank you (or maybe not ). But I really do appreciate it! I am going to wait the 100-400mm
Very well done, I also enjoyed your write up too.
I just ordered an EC-20. Well now the question - Did you cost me a couple of hundred bucks, or did you save me $$$$$ ?
Over the last seven years I have been so close to buying the EC-20, so I finally gave in. if I could not experience the EC-20 & 50-200mm against the Panasonic 100-400mm - and which I'll be comparing to the Nikon D800 & D7200 with an 80-400mm - I would always be wondering.
