Re: Why 35-100 f/2.8 and 40-150mm f/2.8?

That’s an interesting catch, and not one I consciously made. I selected the Oly because I thought it would give me something more, but in fact you are correct in that I am spending a ton of money on essentially the same glass.

Here’s a question for you. Which one would you cancel and what lens or other bit of kit would you add to the mix?

I'm not qualified to respond from the video standpoint but endorse the 40-150 Pro as an essential mid-tele zoom with no optical "gotchas"--sharp across the range. The very close minimum focus may have video applications. Lack of OIS or a focus-limit switch may be downsides while the ability to take the MC14 is a big plus.

Good luck with your new venture!
