REVIEW: Olympus Zuiko ED 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5
10 October 2008
Conclusion: The optical performance of this lens warrants the price on it’s own although the build quality is also quite good and the claimed splash proof design should help endear owners likely to spend time in outdoor environments. No fan here of totally electronic focussing, I would worry about the delicacy of this type of system and the delays it causes in confirming a focus fix, but, short of destructive testing, I have no way of knowing how robust the system is likely to be.
Pros: Excellent optical performance across the board, Good build quality that is externally simple and splash proof, Nice carry case supplied
Cons: Manual focus/over-ride only through camera menu, Autofocus a little slow. Takes a second to lock on., Hood seems a little fragile for class of lens.
