Very nice.
I see it says 40-150 test. Are you trialling it? What's your thoughts? I looked at them online yesterday.
Don't want to but into this thread. I'll come back to this later in either another thread or PM

I'd say it was the best Value for money lens from Olly but sold it to go towards the 14-150 as a walkaround. Should have kept it tbh considering what I got for it.. Get it here with a further 20% off cheap as chips: https://www.ebay.com.a​u …andardDelivery!​4017!AU!-1 (external link)

Ah thanks. My mistake. I was thinking the 40-150mm Pro. That's not the lens featured in that photo.
There's some sale reduced prices of the 40-150 pro with 1.4 Tc, but I'm in 2 minds.
My 70-300 mm is okay, as in okay. Nothing mind blowing  :p

TBH and IMHO, I don't think many pro lenses have anything going for them, other than speed and difference from non pro is minimal when it comes to IQ, but perhaps I'm just seeing some good budget lens images and some bad pro lens images? Of course, owners of pro lenses will need to defend their purchases but I'm prepared to take the flak  :p :-D

The Olly 45 1.8 and the 60mm macro are outstanding IMHO and the Panny 12-32 is no slouch either

Kevin that vine is really nice flower. And! Very sharp!
Honestly it is nice, not just because of our conversation.
Yes. Point taken re lenses. The proof is in the 'proofs' as seen here.
