I'd argue that the difference between a 17-40mm focal range and a 16-50mm (equivalent) focal range is pretty big too.The Canon 17-40 4L comes to mind. But that one weighs half a kilo and has a 77mm filter thread. From the reviews I read, it also is rather meddling in the optics department. I never tried one for myself though.
Every time I pick up my D7200, I remember why I switched from a dSLR to m4/3.The 8-25mm f4 is very interesting to me. If the price is under $800 USD I just might plunk down for my first new lens since the 12-40 PRO. Most everything else has been second hand.
Thanks to all those who have added or explored other systems and reported back here on your experiences. It helps keep me grounded that no perfect system exists. Of all the trade offs, m43 still hits the sweet spot for me despite the knife-fight-in-a-phone-booth that is Full Frame market right now.
i just need to charge the batteries and get out on a photo walk more often and enjoy the process.
I thought the Oly 40-150 pro would have filled that requirement? Or is the 70-200 a lot sharper ? Never tried FF or APSC of any variety to be able to compare.Every time I pick up my D7200, I remember why I switched from a dSLR to m4/3.
I only use the D7200 because there is no m4/3 lens comparable to the 70-200/4 for field sports, for me. That is a sweet handling lens.
But I sometimes miss the ability to shoot at 19fps. Ah, compromises.
So did I. But the NIkon 70-200/4 zooms easier and smoother. The Nikon, at least before it went into the shop for a VR repair, I could easily turn the zoom ring with my fingers.I thought the Oly 40-150 pro would have filled that requirement?

That lens has been on my list for a while.The PL 35-100mm f2.8 is the most obvious equivalent to that Nikon. I love its zooming action.
That sounds reasonable. Wonder when it will arrive, and what its price will be. Would be nice at around the $600 level.They've said that releases will go ahead as planned. Also, the JIP deal wouldn't've been an overnight thing. That would've been in the pipeline for Olympus Japan for months.
I bought the 100-400, so I put my money where my mouth is.I'm committed to sticking with Olympus as long as the equipment works and I can get service if needed (which they hardly have). But, if the new lenses they announced actually materialize, it'd be even more reason to persist. I will persist!
