I don't think the 14-150 is a pro lens. Waiting for the 300mm f4 think it will be a great lens being a telephoto prime plus being able to use the 1.4 TC on it making it a 420mm f5.6. Big fan of telephoto primes my Canon 400 f5.6L was a great lens (couldn't afford the f2.8 and would have been divorced) and was still a good lens with a 1.4 TC and still had AF with my 1D MkIi N.

LOL!

I think where the confusion about the new 14-150 lies is, the new design is splash and dust resistant, like the 12-50 and 60mm macro, in addition to the Pro series, but even the new 14-150 is a far cry from Pro Zuikos optically. It's supposedly the same optically as the old model, with newer coatings. I was able to handle the new 14-150 at a recent Olympus event and it is a very well done lens. Reminds me of the difference between the new and old versions of the 75-300.

? Per the current Olympus website and their section on PRO lens, the new 40-150 is a Pro lens:

......." .M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO
PHENOMENAL
AND PORTABLE
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO Lens is a multi-purpose, dustproof and splashproof telephoto zoom lens. Combined with the OM-D, it provides ultimate imaging performance in a compact and mobile form.

Olympus classify there M.ZUIKO lenses in three categories M.ZUIKO Pro, M.ZUIKO Premium and last of all M.ZUIKO (this is where the 14-150mm is classed) http://asia.olympus-imaging.com/prod...ens/index.html

Steven it looks like the confusion here is that you posted 14-150 Pro in your first question to me not 40-150 Pro as you stated in your last post. If you meant 40-150 Pro yes I am getting one have purcharsed the 40-150+1.4 TC kit but it is on back order with Olympus Australia.

Sounds like you are going to have a great selection of lens when you finish. And your photos definitely show the talent to make good use of them.

....I love my 40-150 @ 2.8 and MC14 AND the lens is a nice MACRO package with a 10 or 16mm tube.

Tom ... great work at the F1 GP.
