    Getting ready to put this lens through its paces today at MotoAmerica races at Barber.
    40-150.

    Have been tied up since I got back. Lens did well focusing, better than the 45-200 4-5.6 but not that much better hit rate. Limitation of the af system at this point. Images are definitely sharper/contrasty'er though. Wonderful piece of glass though. Will post pics in a couple of days.

    Nicely done! Good balance between shutter speed for motion blur and crispness of rider. Which lens and body was that?

    Not yet but I plan on trying it out. While I like the 40-150 it is heavy for an mft lens which goes against the reasons why I got into mft in the first place.

    Very nice. You can check out what FL you used for most of your shots. That will tell you if the 35-100 is a good alternative.
