OP is contemplating a FF camera

In his uninformed hurry to bash Olympus, the OP said he was going to a Full Frame camera to save money. He mentioned the Canon 5d mkIII.

The lens you mentioned compares well to the Olympus 50-200 mm f/2.8-3.5, except that the Canon is slower. Compare that to the E-5 (or E-30 when it was new) and the 50-200 or 70-300 mm.

What are the prices of the Canon camera and lens you mentioned? Minimum apertures?
