PESO:

My SL 90-280 came today so, of course, I found a cat to photograph:

Scout thinks we installed the wind station just for him.

You didn't? Really? Perhaps not consciously, but cats have powers . . .

Everything looks good!  It's heavy but not unmanageable.  It will fit in my 
photo bag.

I imagine it's a spectacular lens . . . but a bit of a monster. Much larger and twice the weight of the PLeica 100-400. If you can wield it for more than a few minutes, you're a better man than I. ;-)

In the field, I often carry two E-M5 IIs one with 100-400 and the other with 12-60 or 12-100. Even the heavier of those two combos weighs less than an SL with 90-280.

Changing lenses in the field should be - uh - interesting. But then, I believe you are more often than I in circumstances with reasonably solid, level surfaces available.

I hope you have a ball with it and get incredible images!
