First shots with the ZD50-200+EC-14
In reply to Richard Pavek, Feb 9, 2014

I bought this lens plus teleconverter recently to replace the ZD70-300. Reading this thread ( helped me in making my decision. I hesitated to sink more money into an obsolete system, but after investigating the Canon and Nikon systems I found that the alternatives were either too expensive, too heavy, or not stabilised. I had to wait a week for a break in this year's horrible winter weather before I could try out the new lens, but I was relieved to find that by paying four times as much as the 70-300 you can get significantly better results.
