50-200mm F2.8-3.5 Zuiko 4/3 zoom, non SWD
  • Guys, thinking about buying this lens to go with my GH2. Just wondering if anyone has experience, or indeed just opinions about this lens for video use ? Weighing up the pros and cons of this vis a vis the Panasonic 35-100 f2.8. No IS on the Oly, but greater reach and under half the price, but also heavier. Cheers

  • I'm interested too...

  • It's quite slow to autofocus. If you're using it for video work, you'd probably want the SWD version which has a mechanically linked manual focus ring.

  • @strangeways. hey thanks for the advice but why would the non swd version be no good for video work re the focusing? I'm a noob.
