Very nice series of photos, especially the first portrait. It is nice to hear your opinion of this new lens. So far I have not hear any bad thing about this lens, except for the high price. I will most likely buy this lens next year.


Had a chance to do a little comparison shooting a between the 35-100 and the Oly 40-150, during day with good light. I was in Galveston and tried to catch some birds dive bombing fish in the bay. A pretty unscientific comparison but fun to do. The 35-100 won hands down for the ability to focus faster and in sharpness when both were shot around 100mm and wide open aperture. I would have been sorely disappointed with any other result.

Thanks for the comparison thoughts.  This is kind of what I would expect and hope for.  Now I just need to start saving my money.
