Well, two stops is 5.6. Still faster than much of the range of the Oly longer lens. And of course much faster at 150mm without the TC.

Does the 40-150 Pro have f2.8 for the whole range?

And query: why would one buy an interchangeable lens camera if you're worried about how you look changing lenses? that's just strange. Maybe you need to be in the compact camera forum? or did you just weld your lens of choice on, never to change it?:

I do keep my SH-50 and SH-1 pocket zoom for that very reason. For Sandra's fashion rush jobs (just as the light goes down), I use the E-M10 II with the 14-150 now. I can use a higher ISO with the E-M10 II than with the pocket zooms.

I retain the 14-42 and the 40-150 kit lenses as backups, but when Sandra had to wait for me to change between kit lenses, it caused irritation.

I sold my 70-300mm, but it is a pretty good lens for the price and given the slowness. The 40-150mm, even with a TC, is better, however. I'm not the only one to think so, see https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4197417

No other woman has even attempted to live with me (Sandra has almost for 20 years now), so I have to remain prepared, with the 14-150 on the E-M10 installed after playing with my kit lenses.

Thanks for coming back.
