Re: Having a hard time to select a lens for a dance performance shooting

The Olympus MFT 40-150mm f2.8 is the equivalent of a FX 80-300mm f2.8, not f5.6 lens. Weight is roughly that of the 24-120mm f4 but with vastly better image quality.

With a DX camera my choice still would be a Sigma 50-150mm f2.8 HMS II lens. I gave mine to a friend and his first use of it was a dance recital with his two daughters. The 50mm at the short end of the zoom I have found works much better when shooting indoors with a DX camera with its crop factor.
