E-620 / 50-200 and EC14 work well together. I have the SWD version but from what I hear thee is very little difference in the optic on these lenses. The degradation of the image with the EC14 is also nominal.

I would go for the old version as you could get it and the EC14 for about the same price as the SWD version.

As to the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 those are like rocking horse poop and the lens was not widely used . Some recon it wonderful. It is also a constant f/2.8.

My "rocking horse poop" Sigma 70-200 works just fine, its as sharp as some of the 50-200 ZD lenses I've seen. I'm sure that the one you used was just a little off Collin.
