It's actually not the wrong forum. I completely forgot to add a lot of points in the review pertaining to you friendly m4/3 folk.

Not friendly.

Quarrelsome would be more accurate.

Due to the crop sensor, I only post reviews in this forum on lenses that I feel would fit well with the ergonomics of m4/3 cameras. The series-E's will make their way into many posts.

Yes, I test the lenses with a NEX-7. Boo-hoo, all mirrorless cameras today do the same thing, the crop factor is just different between a few. Especially thanks to the EM-5's active IBIS, long telephotos such as the 100mm f/2.8 and 135mm f/2.8 are extremely useful.

This is not accuruate.

Legacy lenses do not work the same on u 4/3 as they do on NEX and vice versa.

However, when I get back into bigger lenses (such as my 300mm f/2.8 AI-s ED), I'll most likely not post that review here. Though, on second thought, a 600mm f/2.8 super telephoto FOV may be quite interesting to use for monopod/tripod work.

All the best,
