The comparison I would like to see is the 40-150 + MC-14 vs the 90-250/2.8. Hopefully OzRay will get his hands on one soon.I got a chance to try the lens at Hunts and it is really impressive. Very light and compact and very fast focusing. I asked the the rep point blank if it was better than the 150f2 and he dodged well by answering "it is different". It is certainly a viable replacement for the 50-200 in my mind. It is hard to believe how small and light it is unless you hold it. Much smaller then the 50-200. I'll post a couple of bad test shots in a bit.
Your images are absolutely amazing, what profile did you use in LR?
This lens is one of the best focusing lenses in our system, however I believe there's always space for improvement (or is it much better with the EM1 than other bodies?)
Hi DougI created both sunny and overcast profiles for the E-M1 using a ColorChecker Passport and the provided software, but I find that Adobe's "Camera Natural" profile isn't bad. I played with all kinds of options to give these a subdued color or completely black & white look to fit the subject matter. If there's something you like, I will be glad to share the Lightroom settings.
