    I'm going to be doing a storm chasing class/trip/tour next...

    Again I appreciate everyone's input and experience. I'm not 100% certain I really need the 50-200 and actually considering gutting it out with just the slower 70-300. I'm thinking the 50-200 + the...

    Lens Topics Re: ED vs SWD Question

    Thanks for the input. I thought that may be the case, but just wasn't sure. It's not like I have $1,200 to drop on a lens right now, so maybe the ED version for around $400-$500 used is the way to...

    I am shooting older Olympus equipment (E500 and E520). I'm interested in picking up a 50-200mm lens but am not sure if I can use a SWD lens with my gear.

    Part of what I'm trying to balance is the long exposure times while shooting the sky (aurora borealis) as stars start to streak and the aurora tends to blur and lose its sharpness. I only have one...
