    Default Olympus 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 II SWD

    Hyper fast focus and astonishing clarity, while amazingly cheap compared with other comparable lenses. Works great wide open - and in the rain!









    Shot with: E-3, E-5

    Really great shots! I love the closeup ability of long lenses to get pseudo-macro shots like the first one. All you need is 1:4 macro capability for pictures to come out really great.

    I love that first surfing shot and of course the macro-like close-up. I've been slacking off on photography, so I guess it's time to get the camera out again and bone up for our upcoming trip.
    Cheers, Dave

    New to EM-1 + 50-200 for small birds here in Hawaii. Took a couple of days shooting to figure how to get reasonable "keeper" but I'd like sharperClick image for larger version.

    How does one upload as a sample image instead of thumbnail insert? ... or do all images require click to see as larger size?

    If you want to insert more than a thumbnail, what you have to do is click on the thumbnail so it opens the image, copy the URL there and then insert image
