I really like the pop of the red berries. Have to agree that you really seem to be covered with just these two lenses. Quick question -- how heavy do these lenses feel in hand?

They are wonderful. The 40-150 is solid as a rock. Weight-wise, is between the 70-300 and 50-200 four-Thirds lenses, but does not 'feel' nearly as heavy as the 50-200. That the 40-150 does not extend when zoomed makes it feel even smaller. The E-M1, 12-40 and 40-150 are an easy carry in the Think Tank City Walker 10 bag with lots of other "stuff". The day the 7-14mm f2.8 M. Zuiko shows up I may need to rethink the bag. I have a Think Tank Retrospective 7 that is configured just differently enough that may well be the bag I shift into more often.

...I love my TT Retro 7, just the right size overall. I also have a Retro 5 but it is a bit small; I use the 5 for my E-P3/FT 9-18 show car system, for that the Retro 5 is perfect.

So, I will use the Retro 7 when and if the time comes for the new lens set. Dang, the last date I had direct from Arlington Camera was Dec 22...... which was 2-days ago.

1.4TC delivered to my office this morning. When I get home tomorrow I'll be going by to pick it up for some shooting on Sunday.
