Re: Help - Oly 70-300mm vs 50-200mm

I sold my 70-300 because my keeper rate was terrible. I don't usually lug around a tripod, and I found it hard to manage in anything other than ideal conditions. Hand held it was a disaster at longer reaches. I bought the NON SWD version of the 50-200 and the EC14 - it is not a lot heavier and just about the same size. IQ is on another planet by comparison, though to be fair I think I had a poor copy of the 70-300.
