This 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD lens from Olympus covers a range equivalent to 100-400mm on a 35mm camera and costs around £1000. Besides having a relatively bright maximum aperture, it also has a silent SWD focusing motor.
I got one of these for about $ in very good shape and I really recomend it!This is a Sharp pro level lens: Yes, the auto-focus is not fast in an e-pl5 but when the alternative is a 40-150mm f2.8 for about 7x the price I paid for it, that becomes completely secondary.Yes it is a big heavy lens, but...
Durable, Image quality
This lens is amazing. Very clear photos and with it having a F stop of 2.8 I can take photos with no flash at dusk and you get a perfect picture! I do need to say it is somewhat heavy so I use my Tripod. I don't get any shakiness with it.
I planned to use this lens for photographing indoor live performances by musical groups. It works beautifully for that. The f2.8 lets me use higher shutter speeds and/or lower ISO for better results than I was getting.
Strong Construction, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
I would put this lens in the same category as the 14-54mm in performance and build. It is weather sealed an fairly heavy. Built like a tank. It is sharp across all focal lengths. Not as sharp as my 12-60mm but in the same range as the 14-54mm.
Fast, sharp, build, weather sealing and great bokeh.
