basically you have to try the lens /any lens/ before making judgment Smile

This thread has a picture of my Zuiko telephoto collection. 200mm f5 and f4 beside 500mm mirror. The 200 f5 is very compact. Mine is a "silver nose". Seeing WolverineX's pictures makes me realise I should go out and use mine.

Thanks for posting this test. I have three cheap 200mm lenses (just bought one for 3.60!) and none of them are very good so I'll be looking out for an Oly 200, cheers, I really value all 37 of your lens tests, keep em coming!

As far as I can tell, this is the lightest MF 200mm ever made.

I just found one for my nex, and will post samples when it arrives.

Amazing. Sharp & great color.
My Oly 135/3.5 is small, cheap but its a very good lens. Now I am thinking to try this lens. Hope the price wont go up tomorrow when the sellers see this ... hahaha Very Happy

Wow, those look very good. Were they at f/5 by chance? Good subject separation pop. But still, oh so slow.

I have one of these arriving next week. If the lens works well on my NEX, it will probably become my travel tele. Good and small.

Thanks for the samples, very nice pics!
