    Default Re-Discovering 4/3 150mm F2

    One of my favourite lenses, but rather neglected since E-M1 times.
    I pulled it out the other day, and was so pleased, it got used for 2 days running!
    Still weighs a ton, and focus feels like heavy work (relative to the m4/3 40-150pro), but most enjoyable and it won't languish so long in the future.
    The subjects are only what was to hand, and the light was dull, but I didn't mind.
    Cheers,
    Don

    Color and contrast are about the same. Detail from the 150 is slightly better and background (bokeh) is significantly nicer. Like all of the Oly zooms, the 40-150pro bokeh can be very good, though not as fine as the 150, but sometimes busy and less nice.
    Focus of the 40-150 is much faster.
