first of all thank you for this excellent review.

As I’m a Fuji as well as an Olympus (OMD E-M1) shooter like you I’m wondering which one would be the better lens overall to invest in.
The excellent Olympus 40-150 f2.8 together with the Oly Teleconverter or the Fuji 40-150 f2.8.
I’m mostly interested in taking photos of my 2yo toddler, so fast AF is crucial.
Which one would you prefer? Will you write an extra article comparing these two lenses like you did for the PanaLeica and the 56mm f1.2 (btw this article and the price difference between these two lenses made me invest into the Fuji X System with a X-E1 now followed by an X-E2).

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

Comment on Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR by Alan Paone http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-fujinon-xf-50-140mm-f2-8-r-lm-ois-wr/#comment-218205 Thu, 18 Dec 2014 06:11:55 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=4341#comment-218205 Does it have the same oddly designed gasket on the lens mount as the 18-135 (with the rubber sealing around the outside) or is it done the more normal way? Seeing how excited you seem to be about this lens is heartening

Comment on Panasonic 7-14mm vs Olympus 9-18mm by Sam http://admiringlight.com/blog/panasonic-7-14mm-vs-olympus-9-18mm/#comment-218183 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 23:41:31 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=1950#comment-218183 It’s bad, really bad. I had many ruined shots that exhibited strong CA, purple blobs and flare. I sold my copy of the Panasonic 7-14mm. I mainly photographed indoor. Although sharpness and contrast are fine, the rest is not.

Comment on Review: Sigma 60mm f/2.8 DN Art (Sony E-Mount) by bill m. http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-sigma-60mm-f2-8-dn-art-sony-e-mount/#comment-218162 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 17:53:50 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=3779#comment-218162 Very close to purchasing the a6000. Would like to start with one lens. Thinking either the standard 16-50 kit, the Sigma 30/2.8, or the Sony 35/1.8. Any real world advice? Currently not into video, but that may change with the 6000 later.
Also, anyone have any thoughts on using Canon EF mounts with adapter on the 6000 or would I be better selling them off and going with lenses designed for mirrorless? I understand they will be manual focus only.

Comment on Review: Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-32mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS by Andrei http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-panasonic-lumix-12-32mm-f3-5-5-6-ois/#comment-218149 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:15:11 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=2982#comment-218149 Prone to shutter shock, that’s a shame. It seems to be such a nice little lens with great image quality. Maybe there’s no shutter shock effect if I use the electronic shutter on my GX7.

Comment on Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8 vs. Fuji 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 by Jordan Steele http://admiringlight.com/blog/fuji-50-140mm-f2-8-vs-fuji-55-200mm-f3-5-4-8/#comment-217912 Sat, 13 Dec 2014 13:21:01 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=4323#comment-217912 I understand. For my own day to day use, the 55-200 will definitely be in the bag. If I buy the 50-140 for myself, it’ll be for event use and occasions where the size isn’t an issue. It is a great lens, though.

(Hint…it’s really good). My full review should be done sometime next week.
