That big lens can generate nice images.

And even if you end up finding the lens isn't to your taste (chiropractor bills too high?), you could make a killing reselling it.

I handled this lens at the launch of the E3 (when everything in pro 4/3rds suddenly got bigger) and it was simply too big for me. The 50-200 + ec 1.4 gives a similar reach at a fraction of the weight.

Now you own one and I don't, I would be interested if you find significant performance differences between this lens and the 50-200.

The bokeh you show in your OP is nice, but I can do that with the 50-200 if there is enough separation.

Thanks Tim. What I have found on the 50-200 Boke is the transition in the highlights is very harsh especially in high contrast areas. Yes the 50-200  can be separated.   But what I find on the 90-250 that is  so good is the toning in of the background without the harsh separation . The background on the 50-200/bigma  has to be at infinity and and thing in between can get a bit fuzzy and I mean really busy.
