To follow-up on my post from monday, here is another deal that just appeared and is difficult to ignore if you own a m4/3rd camera (olympus or Panasonic) and likes to travel light.
The Olympus zuiko 4-5.6 40-150mm is now available for only $99 in silver (here) or in black. I happen to own that lens ( got it several years ago) and can say that this offers a very good balance between focal range, weight and image quality. Of course it is not on par with the newly released Olympus Zuiko 2.8/ 40-150mm but we are obviously talking about two different lenses in terms of weight and price since the pro version with its constant aperture sells for $1,429 !!
If you do not have a long tele lens this is a good bargain even if you only have use for such focal length once in a while.
I will be posting this month my top 10 lens recommendation for m4/3rd lenses fit for people wanting to travel light.
