    Hi Ladies and Gents

    I have a 590nm converted E-P5 and mainly use the O9-18 for it - which is excellent for MFT IR use. (i.e. no hotspotting.) However, I'd like a bit more reach on occasions and I am, therefore, considering the O14-150ii -(especially now that there is a £120 deal on it!)

    MarK Hilliard, USA has mentioned in these pages that the Mki is okay but I'm wondering if anyone here has used the Mkii with any success across it's range and varying apertures?

    The mark II has different coatings to the first so even if the optical design and aperture coatings are compatible the optical glass coatings may not be, some other lenses with the same type of coatings seem to work very well however (12-40mm f2.8).

    Might be waiting a while til someone responds given how new the lens is and the rarity of full spectrum conversions are themselves.

    Yes, I had thought about that too and I have a feeling I'll be ordering and hoping for the best and probably answering my own question.
