    Cons: Big, heavy. (But hey; it\'s ƒ/2!) Considerable flare; use the hood! Lacks close focus, but works well with the EX-25 extension tube. Non-SWD focus motor is a bit noisy.

    Pros: Sharp as a tack, corner-to-corner, at any aperture! Fast! Was the fastest zoom ever made when it first came out. Three-position focus limiter avoids focus hunting in many situations. Looks professional. Your paying clients will be as impressed with seeing you shoot as they will be with the results. :-) The EX-14 teleconverter is essentially invisible, giving you a tack-sharp 141mm ƒ/2.8. Twice as useful for self-defence if mugged in a dark alley as an ƒ/2.8 would be. :-)

    Summary: OMG! What a lens! I call it my \"bag of primes.\" It is one of the sharpest lenses I own, zoom or prime! Every now and then, I think it\'s too big and heavy, and then I add up the weight and size of carrying a 35/2, 50/2, 75/2, 100/2, and 141/2.8, and then I decide it isn\'t really that big or heavy. Focus speed on an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II is quite fast, but I understand it can be slow on camera bodies that only do contrast detection auto-focus.

    Cons: A little slow to focus. Heavy

    Pros: Very Sharp, nice contrast, great color, great bokeh

    Summary: The only limitation I've found with this lens is the body it's attached to. I also use Canon and have a 70-200 f2.8L ISII, and this lens favors very well against the Canon L lens. Far less vignette, and much sharper on the edges.

    Cons: Size and weight, not very balanced on body.

    Pros: Again like all SHG lenses - the micro-details and contrast it reveals. Build and optical quality

    Summary: Highly recommended!

    Cons: - huge and heavy - a bit noisy AF (no utrasonic type)

    Pros: - excellent optics, very good at f/2, outstanding at f/2.5 - top-notch build (all-metal), best in class - excellent smooth bokeh - weatherproof

    Summary: Excellent lens without flaws, expensive, but worth every penny.
