Pros: Brightness, image quality, stabilization.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: Purchased lens used with the Olympus E-1 and the 14-54, later used on E 620. When I decided to buy the Nikon D750 with the 24-120 in kit I decided to keep the aforementioned kit since the shopkeeper had made a ridiculous assessment to me to pick it up. Unfortunately it now lies almost unused but its characteristics of brightness, quality of professional image, optical construction and even excessive weight make it current even if it is now 8/9 years since its purchase, too bad that it can be used only on the 4/3 system.

Pros: Quick autofocus, great sharpness and brightness, tropicalized, compact.

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: To this day, with almost 10 years on my shoulders, my 50-200 swd works like the first day. Excellent lens in every circumstance that I use together with the "old" flagship e5 and together offer a really good result. With micro I do not know, I had used it on the em1 first version but it was slower than on the e5 so I left it to the native system.

Pros: AF fast and silent, professional image quality, not heavy for what it offers. Lens hood, case with strap and tripod included

Cons: Nobody. Caution: The AF works at maximum of its potential only on 4/3 (old bayonet) or E-M1 (I or II) batteries with adapter. On other bodies m4 / 3, the AF performance (which is not verified and model dependent) is due to the lack of the focus algorithm that uses this lens, whose AF is then directed more slowly.

Opinion: Do not make it distracting from being an old-fashioned lens that requires an adapter: buying it is a bargain. The 50-200 SWD is an exceptional lens also on m4 / 3. Of course, if you do not have an E-M1, the only model that (in the first and second versions) has maintained the focus mechanism typical of the old 4/3 system, the AF might be a bit slow (I do not have it tried in person) and to limit the manual to focus peaking - it also helps greatly the fact that the MF is permanently available by turning the ring on the barrel without having to activate it in the menu or move levers. rnAmong this, the lens offers outstanding image quality, comparable to that of the excellent 12-40mm PRO as to sharpness, color, and resistance to defects. The AF on the E-M1 is very quick, accurate and silent (sometimes, if it is "useless", it is almost instantaneous). It is sufficiently open for portrait needs, at least bythe 80mm, where I rarely wanted more blurry. From 50 to 70mm maybe is more suitable for group photos or portrait busts.rnrn The construction is great and makes a nice impression to keep it in hand. It's not very heavy for what it offers. In conclusion, a professional or almost objective, well adapted to portraiture, weddings, and, coupled with the E-M1, to sports or shooting fast moving objects. I voted for 10, I really can not find fault with them (right, it would be nice a little brighter) .rn

Pros: Bright. Precise and fast. tropicalized

Cons: For anyone today

Opinion: Then, this morning I received this morning and this afternoon I went cannon now to try it. I accompanied with olympus om-d em1 and EC20. connecting it to the duplicator to lose a little bit of light, but in my opinion nothing serious. I was provided with kickstand but honestly I is not served. I'm a skinny girl, on my own I did not last effort. Maybe working on it all day weight there, I do not say the opposite but I did try a few shots of herons bringing it to its full zoom and then with the duplicator to 800mm and was accurate and FAST. I write in capital letters because my fear was that. It was not fast enough. I have yet to get carried away to charity. But as a first impression I was really satisfied. Recommended to all those who can not afford a leica 1600 € ... And so are "satisfied" of a lens where with a good used remains a fair compromise. I repeat: satisfied because I used freehand without a tripod at maximum zoom and photosThey are sharp and precise. I took pictures with very low light and at full zoom it with doubler EC20 reaches 800mm and focal length to 800mm is 7.0 and 5.6 to 50 mm because it increases by two stops. And with that, I made pictures more beautiful and brighter than the 75-300 with more light and with closest subject ... But it's heavy. I have to admit it. I always took in hand and all afternoon ... Beautiful, bright, precise! Autofocus also quick to 800mm (with the sd card of fast writing otherwise slow), but weight.

Pros: Objective-quality dust-proof and splash water. Very rugged and accurate built with quality materials. Weight and dimensions. Very good optical quality, bright lens and AF-S MAF fast enough.

Cons: to detect a discrete elongation during zooming and the fact that it is in fact of a varifocal lens, which implies the need for a realignment of the MAF varies whenever the focal length is affected in part on the speed of MAF species in AF- C. Price just a little high.

Opinion: Goal by the excellent performance already at room temperature, is at the center than at the edges and the entire zoom range. In conjunction with the extender Ec-14 shows no signs of decay image. Raccomandabilissimo for those with the appropriate body (E-3, E-5 and E-30), preferably combined with battery grip, to have a good balance. However, since the weight is not excessive is also well suited for use freehand. Very good resistance to flare, good minimum distance of MAF.
