    I cannot found this lens in other threads so I made this thread for it.
    This lens is pretty soft at 80 mm but surprisingly sharp at 200 mm when stopped down to 5.6 or 8.
    This is crop at full resolution (at 200 mm, unknown F).

    Direct comparison of a Moon shots (10 stacked shots) between native zoom lens M.Zuiko Digital 40-150 and Konica at 5.6.

    Another two examples + crops at 100% resolution.
    First is the photo with the configuration with worst IQ - at 80 mm and f/3.5.
    Second one is at 200 mm and f/8.

    Second life of my Konica!
    In the previous year I almost never used this lens.
    It's heavy and reach isn't so much different than my basic lightweight Olympus 40-150.
    But I took it, together with 40-150 and old 100-500 Super Cosina, at military show NATO Days 2016. And truth is that after I tried both 40-150 and 100-500, I've ended with Konica and I used it most of the time (60% of all images vs 34% in case of 100-500 and 6% for 40-150).
    40-150 was mostly fine for aircrafts in the distance but for fast close flybys AF is too slow and I didn't like electronic manual focus.
