I was pleased having pre-ordered it. I like it. It needs bright light. It is so easy to have with me. A lens of this kind was one of the reasons I got into Micro 4/3. I could never afford or justify 600mm Canon glass, nor have the back for it. Here's another from it, handheld at 300mm; single shot; manually focused.

Well, this thread has convinced me! I'm going to have to sell my Oly E-PM1 and Canon 50D, and get the E-M5 It seems to have the best of both worlds: portability and great IQ!

That's pretty good, Savas. I had the 100-300 lens and have taken quite a few good photos with it, but I sold it in anticipation of the Canon 150/2.8 lens, and I am optimistic that Olympus will release a couple of fast/long lenses (like their MFT lenses) ... maybe a 150/2 and 300/2.8. Somehow, I have more faith in Olympus, as they have a pretty good history of making some fabulous lenses. Their 75 and 60 macro are extraordinary works of art IMO - just beautiful in every way. I was hoping to replace the 100-300 with a couple of good primes + TC. Extension tubes are already available but there is still no sign of any TC ... which should happen before too long.

A 300 f2.8 would be something to behold if it was in the category of the 45 and 75 wow. Using the EF 400mm f5.6 is fantastic when you nail the focus and can keep it still enough. To have some fast or even not so fast quality native lenses would be great, but I also know they would be very expensive.

In the meantime I took to the pebbled beach again. After using the 12-50 and in macro mode I was disappointed comparing the cleaner images of the 45mm from the other day. So I only took the 45mm and 75mm next time and was not disappointed at all in these to very clean lenses.

Very nice ... and I am surprised that you could shoot that close with the 75. Have you thought about getting the Kenko extension tubes? I thought about it, but I already have the 60 macro. BTW I love the retractable/sliding lens hood of the 60 macro ala Leica 90 style. It's so well designed - it's very deep and it wraps around or hugs the lens barrel when not in use, so it doesn't take up any additional space in your camera bag. Super neat!

I had the tripod extended just enough so the 75 would focus. Funny thing I have just looked at the price of the M4/3 kenko tubes with the idea of getting them. At 99 a good deal I think. I may well pick them up. I remember getting the EF100 f2.8 for macro and regretted it knowing now that tubes are a brilliant way to get macro shots on a decent lens if you are only going to use them occasionally.

Just get the cheap tubes without electrical contacts - I just ordered some on Ebay for like $8.

Love that first pebble shot by the way.

Yes may just do that. I do use the ef100mm f2.8 on an adapter which works as long as I set the aperture when disengaging from the EOS camera body.

Yes, lots of cheap $8 generic MFT extension tube sets out there including those by Fotodiox and Rainbowimaging. I am sure the Kenko ones are better made though, with full AF function which is nice.

Also, if i may ad to Bobbys comment. Those cheap ones that have different mm tubes at screw together- move your lens data from the top to the bottom, so to speak. so depending upon the focal length (tubes chosen) you lens may mount up-side down s o to speak. Been there done that with cheap screw in tubes.

I was suffering from holding my breath waiting for someone to produce a 300mm full frame equivalent field-of view lens for m43, so broke down and bought a used copy of the Olympus Zuiko 150mm f/2 ED. It is quite a lens ... in fact other than slow autofocus, a suburb lens. Perhaps the new one - if there ever is a new one - will be just a bit smaller and lighter, 'tho

CalW,
I like your play with words. Your title states " E-M5 Mounted on Zuiko 150mm f/2 ED Lens" Usually it is the lens that is mounted on the Camera, but in this case I think you were correct that the camera is mounted on the lens.
