    I found it front focused every time with my EM5. I know some others have reported the same behavior.

    This showcase is getting a little neglected.

    Got the flu in Feb and it has been a long slow recovery through which I have had almost no motivation for photography. Finally got to shooting some lacrosse this past weekend. All with my E-M1 and the mighty SWD.

    Great captures. It’s been fun watching as the photos get better and better. Now you need some good mud games to photograph.

    Thanks. Would love to get some rain and mud, but seems doubtful with our weather and the turf fields the boys play on. We did get rain during a game two weekends ago, but I was suffering from bronchitis (after the flu!) and the cough killed my ability to hold the lens steady. The few sequence I shot were all c**p. Got a few more weeks of action in front of us, so hopefully I can get some more decent images.

    Due to some interesting dynamics, the boys' club lost a bunch of players but is committed to fielding two teams in the league. So they are playing a lot of double headers. Played this game a couple of hours after the one above ended. This location is tough photographically: Parents need to sit in the stands, the backgrounds are very busy and the light always seems wrong.

  10. First time to use this lens today. Not heavier than the O40-150Pro+MC1.4 by much. Focus speed with E-M1 not as snappy as the 0-150Pro, but acceptable. I used SAF+MF just to be sure, because I have not yet done a micro focus adjustment for it yet. I'm sure I'll use it more than other 200mm legacy lenses I've collected in the past year.

    Nice pics :thumbup:
    Can't wait for mine to arrive!
    Was this with the EC-14?
    Very capable lens in capable hands IMHO
     
  12. No I haven't got a converter. Too expensive when I checked. Those birds let me get close today.

  15. Some great pics. Do we really need 2 separate threads (non SWD and SWD) for this great lense? AFAIK there isn't a great deal different between the two.

    I'm asking after read the OP's opening post referring to a thread for the non SWD version. Which I own.

    Yes, because there are differences between the lens. Physically they are very difference, especially the hoods. They have different aperture fall off rates. While people claim they are optically the “same” I argue that they are similar since the glass from one can’t be used in the other because they are not identical.
