Re: Defective lens, return.

Considering you can crop an image from the 40-150PRO from 4500X3500 to 1000X800 and it still looks sharp and detailed, the 50-200 "destroys" the 40-150PRO is a gross exaggeration = defective testing.

The extra range with the TC's are nice to have if you have enough light. F/2.8 is highly desirable in an 80-300 telephoto when you don't. You can leave f/5.6-8 home on a gloomy day if your subject moves.

It would be nice if the OLY lens was lighter. If it was, it wouldn't be as robust. Internal zoom is pretty nice. The comment that the 50-200 destroys it is nonsense. If it did, it wouldn't matter.  The OLY lens is sharp enough and its faster.
