    Just curious. It seems that you have upgraded to an E-M1 since you posted these photos. How do you think that the lens performs on the E-M1? Is the autofocus useful? This is one of the 4/3 lenses that really interest me. Ideally I'd like to see if it works with the Olympus teleconverters.

    Just got this beauty. Getting to grips with it slowly. Love it so far, though it seems like its going to be a slow burning love affair with a lot of effort and a steep learning curve. Well, I'm still with my wife so I'm sure I have the patience to see me through it...!

    Verynice.
    And what about the weight? Are you always using a tripod?

    FWIW, the weight doesn't bother me. It's very similar to using the Oly 50-200. AF is similar too. In fact, it works similarly with the ec-14 and ec-20 TCs.

    My biggest challenge with it is keeping that skinny DoF in position handheld, but it performs fine handheld otherwise. Being a 4/3 lens, it needs to be focus tuned which I'll do after vacation next month.

    Have barely used it since getting it. I think it's going to be a favorite.

    Ok great.
    And in the macro range?
    Have you ever tested the working distance? In apsc should be ~20cm for 1:1 and 40 cm for 1:2. From lens to subject.

    Bronx,
    I did, but I don't recall the exact distance. I want to say 14 inches or so. It was easier to work with than the O60. The O60 is with me on vacation though :)

    finally got a chance to take some pictures with the Sigma 150mm. Here are a few cloudy day examples.

    Being a macro lens, although it is HSM focussing (similar to SWD on ZD lenses) it is still too slow for action. If you're taking birds in trees, then that's fine (with AF on E-M1).

    okay.. then maybe also fall short for sports like football or basketball? im planning to buy a long range lens i already locked in to 50-200swd (for the time being) then i came across this lens and it seem to produce tact sharp images so i would like to consider

    You're better off with the 50-200 SWD lens for that purpose, although it still isn't as fast as the Pro 40-150, so I'm led to believe, but still quite good.
