[OM] Look before crossing

Olympus E-M1 Mark II and the underrated "plastic fantastic" Oly 40-150 f/4-5.6. So many copies are available used. I got mine for a song. I think inexperienced people try this lens once or twice, get blurry pictures because they don't bump up their ISO, become frustrated and sell them.

The image quality is only a little less than the one kilogram Olympus 50-200 f/2.8-3.5.  I'm glad I ended up with both. The light one is for travel and general carrying around. The Big One is for Really Serious Stuff and the need for speed--with the proviso that if it's more than 200 feet from the car, it's not photogenic. (Supposedly Ansel said that).
