I have 3 lenses capable of 150mm FL and I'm contemplating 2 more! What's wrong with me!!!
Assuming the 150 Macro, 40-150 and 50-200?
Obviously the 40-150 is a lot smaller than the 50-200
The 50-200 has more reach and faster aperture than the 40-150
and neither of them can do macro.
So I don't see a problem with those 3. What else are you looking at?
Yes Tk. Those are the three.
The other two are the 40-150 Pro and the 150,f2. The latter would only be if I stumbled into one for very cheap.
When Pany announces the 100-400 zoom that one might make the list if it performs well, but that isn't for the 150FL so maybe it doesn't count.
The 40-150mm Pro makes sense if it is to replace the 50-200 for a little bit faster AF, but otherwise it isn't going to be adding much to the kit. It's not even any smaller and only a little bit lighter than the 50-200.
Everybody wants the 150mm f2.0!
Yes it would be just for the faster, more reliable AF. The 50-200 would stay for its reach and use with the TCs, at least until the 300 and 100-400 appear and their performance understood.
Caveat here...all of these lenses are capable of more than I am. My time is short and I just want the satisfaction of knowing that when I'm presented with an uncommon shot, I get the max from the opportunity. I have had the 40-150r with me a few times and it was just too slow for the exposure situation. Likewise the 50-200 just missed focus or a shot due to focus. Doesn't amount to a lot of missed shots, but when shooting moving, unpredictable objects in the hour or two I get in a month every little bit helps.
I often thought of selling off he 40-150/4-5.6 when I bought the 40-150/2.8 PRO
However, for bringing about everyday - I'd rather have the slower aperture with the smaller overall size than the faster glass - especially since i will be shooting during the day with it most of the time.
Easy fix for the 50-200, Focus Tune.
There is only one 150 FL lens. Just sayin'
Or else you like that focal length!
Yes Phocal, just got the v4 upgrade in the mail, but the 50-200 still hunts a bit ... Always at the worst time
Yes, the 150/2 is "my precious"
But the 40-150/2.8 isn't bad either!
