Re: Olympus 100-400mm F5-6.3 vs Olympus PRO 40-150mm F2.8 + teleconverter

First of all IMHO every one should have the 40-150 pro lens, I use mine on the G9 and the IQ is second to none, the 40 end is a bonus as is the close focus that does most of my flower shots now. I also have the 1.4 and the IQ doesn`t drop much at all, I also have the 2x and you can see a slight drop in IQ but nothing serious. I also have the PL100-400, it can be a superb lens if you need the long end and have good light ( IQ is probably somewhere between the 40-150pro with the 1.4 and x2 )

I don`t use the supplied hood on 40-150, I purchased a metal screw in hood of about30mm in length and it is fine with no flare. Over 50 years of photography I have never owned a lens that satisfies  me as much as the 40-150 pro in so many ways, yes you do often want/need something a bit longer but that is why the lens is so good because they have limited it to the 150 end.
