      Not yet.

  • Wow, file this under old news! In all seriousness, the 50-200 SWD is a superb lens, equally adept shooting everything from weddings to wildlife. In fact, it’s one of the main reasons I decided to shoot Oly instead of Cannikon…

    That being said, I wouldn’t drop $1K on one until we get reassurances from Oly that they’re sticking with “legacy” 4/3. For me that’ll come in the form of an E-4 or 5 body that’s competitive with the other semi-pro or pro bodies on the market. I love the E-3, but circa 2007 just don’t cut it in the DSLR body market…

    For me a lot hinges on Oly’s next pro body. More than anything else, I need a usable ISO 1600+ as well as intuitive and well executed HD video capture. Not just an “HD” sticker on the box, but something I can use to shoot weddings, portrait sessions, and PJ video footage with.

    Oh yeah, and how about a weatherproof version of the FL-50R too? Assignments happen in bad weather too, and if Canon can do it with the 530EX Oly should be able to pull it off too…

    Just my $0.02…
