    I bought this demo lens 2 weeks ago but today was the first time I got to do much with it. Took it to the Gathering of B-25s at Grimes Field in Urbana Ohio.

    I really needed a polarizer.


    5 World War II bombers flying around a small Western Ohio town. It was just a little surreal.

    How did you like using this lens?
    When I had it, I thought it was a little slow and not as far reaching as I would have liked.
    I may want to revisit.
    Thanks for sharing these.

    It's not bad, I only paid $160 for it (demo). It had a tough time focusing on the in flight airplanes, I had to get it right in the green box before the lens would even focus. It would have been nice to have more reach, but the camera and the lens are small and I can carry the E-P1, 20mm Panny and this one on my motorcycle and not be overloaded when I start shoving things in my pockets to walk around.

    Obviously if you do this sort of thing a lot this is not the rig to do it with. But for the size and the price I can't complain much.
