It doesn’t happen very often to see a Four Thirds lens or camera review. That’s why it’s worth to mention the new Olympus ED 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD lens review made by Photographyblog (Click here). That lens is made in Tatsuno, the same fab that is currently producing the 12mm f/2.0 Micro Four Thirds lens that will be announced on June 30th. And as you can read the lens is a very good performer:
– “Build quality is outstanding, with a solid construction and superb fit and finish.”
– “It’s also very good in the optical department, showing pretty consistent sharpness results across most of its aperture range. The moderate vignetting, lack of chromatic aberrations, and good close-up performance”
– “At first sight, it may look bulky and heavy, but when you remind yourself that it covers an angle-of-view range similar to that of a 100-400mm lens on a 35mm camera, you immediately realise that it’s actually quite compact, especially if you factor in the bright maximum aperture, too.”
Now let’s hope Olympus will make such nice zooms for the Micro Four Thirds system!
