    In order to complete the TopPro/SHG group, I add a thread for the 90-250mm. We got one at an Olympus user meeting in Germany for testing:

    P4232572_web.
    (Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 90-250mm 1:2.8 on Olympus E-5 with 1/640 s, f/2.8, ISO320 @ 216mm)

    Best regards,

    Sorry, I missed it since I was thinking that the thread title convention allows some sorting by focal length:
    "For the purpose of sorting by focal length, please do not put anything between the brand name and the focal length."

    Hopefully, the admin can move this part to the existing thread. Many Thanks!

    Best regards,
    Alex

    Recently acquired a used copy of this lens. I'm impressed with how well it cooperates with the EC-20 teleconverter, giving 180-500mm f/5.6. It lacks some of the surgical precision of the 300/4, but makes up for it with rich, contrasty colours and soft, impressionistic defocusing. Here are a few pics from yesterday afternoon. All shot either handheld or on a Manfrotto Xpro monopod.

    A couple more from that day, nothing special, but an indication of its general look. I heard this terrific racket coming from somewhere and traced it to a squirrel high in a tree above me. First, at 243mm without the teleconverter:

    E-M1 mk II + 90-250/2.8 1/500th @f/3.2, ISO800, 243mm

    Damaged Grey Squirrel.

    Then adding the EC-20 revealed that the unfortunate creature had a damaged left eye — I don't know whether it was from injury or disease, but it was clearly causing it some distress:

    E-M1 mk II + 90-250/2.8 + EC-20. 1/500th @f/5.6, ISO3200, 500mm
    Damaged Grey Squirrel 2.
