Re: Happy to Hear This!....

I just received my 40-150 f/2.8 from B&H yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased.  Those little protrusions on the barrel that bother some people cause me no grief at all - and I am a real pill about things like that.  I had been looking at the lens last week and talked myself out of it, but when I visited B&H a few days ago the price had gone down $150.  That was a good incentive.  The focal range is perfect for shooting the birds that come to the feeders outside my windows.

Just got a couple of rubber lens hoods (that's the way they were offered on Amazon - a set of two for under $10.  I'd rather use them than the behemoth of a hood that comes with the lens.

I, too, love the 60 macros and it will sit on an em10 ii, read to use when I need something smaller to carry around.

It's been raining (doesn't that always happen when you get a new camera or lens?) so I haven't put the new lens through it's paces, but it did capture some turkeys this afternoon through my front door double-paned skylight.  They like to clean up the fallout from the bird feeder.
