Compared to Canon/Nikon its pretty cheap, though I don`t think the other two made a 70-200 f2 equi.

All this talk of selling things is making me feel very guilty! Sad I guess I'm going to have to start emptying the cupboards.

Nice shots CB.....I'm still waiting for UPS Sad Sad

I cheated a little bit, I parted with only 60 odd quid for the grip as I also gave up my 50mm f1.4 legacy lens, bit that only cost my a fiver.

This has gone up now, yet another user review.

I think one of the best M4/3 lens deals has to be the Sigma 19mm, its a little gem, and its cheap.

There's no real equivalent. The Canon 70-200 f2.8 is about 200 cheaper.

Oh dear. Hate having to wait in for deliveries - mine arrived at 11am (Royal Mail).

If Canon ever made a 70-200 f2, how much extra would it cost, a fair bit Smile

Another with the Oly 60mm macro. Uncropped. The image width is about 1 cm in reality.

It's fascinating how much more there is to see when you look closely at the fine detail, isn't it? I guess that's main appeal of macro work.

Indeed. Spotted this big, scary looking industrial machine today...................................... or is it? Wink

Gosh, I've had the new lens for nearly half a day now, and I still haven't used it to take a picture of my pixie! Must put that right soon! GrinTongue

Oh dear CB, I think you are in trouble.

Macro-mania is nigh on incurable and I can see the early symptoms! Wink
