Default E-3 and 50-200mm

I just recently had an opportunity to pick up a used 50-200mm on terms I could not resist. I've only had it out this past Saturday for a couple of hours on the E-3. Is this lens sharp??

Hi Steven,

Congrats on getting the 50-200mm. Now, with your E-3 and the 50-200mm, you're in a different world as far as the degree of IQ that is possible with that combo.

And, as far as I can see with these images, you're off to a fine start.



So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

You are really going to love that lens! Dunno about the EC-20, but that lens also holds up well to the addition of the EC-14.
