E-PL1 and 14-150mm M Zuiiko, the combo works well

Thanks for sharing. I've been shooting the moon also but with legacy lenses. I've been wondering if the 150mm would be enough for this kind of shots, but you made me realize how versatile the mZD 14-150 really is. I suppose your image is cropped a bit, or is it? Now you have made me to want the 14-150. :mad:

Here is one of my recent moon shots. E-P1, Soligor 300mm f/5.5 @ f/8, heavily cropped. It's just that I am tired to change the lenses so often and really need a lightweight and versatile native lens. I haven't searched if there is a moon thread here at mu-43.com, but this one could be the one, thanks to Lili.

I find I gave to crop pretty heavily even with the 45-200 ... Been thinking about a 2x teleconverter tube ...

Thanks all, it is cropped about 70%, even on my e510 with the 70-300mm the moon does not fill the frame.

How about a 500 mm Mirror Tele Lens. Big but relatively light and economical.

well done!
I think the 14-150 is right at the upper end of lens size for my E-PL1, any larger it would be too unwieldy.
The AF is fast and silent, the IQ is really quite good.
I consider the expense well invested :)
