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--

I use one, Oly 12-200/3.5-6.3 <https://www.dpreview.com/products/olympus/lenses/olympus_12-200_3p5-6p3> For both travel and general. I don't really feel the need for more speed outdoors, or, mostly, indoors.

Funny thing is that it's only a tiny bit larger and heavier than the 25/1.2 Pro and 45/1.2 Pro, and has fewer elements than the 25/1.2 Pro.

with the proviso that if it's more than 200 feet from the car, it's not 
photogenic. (Supposedly Ansel said that).

Nope, St Ansel wasn't afraid of a trek. It was Edward Weston who said that.

Corrective Moose

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
