Yep, Joel, it's a fine lens, though heavy. I have paired it with a
Leica-R shoulder stock to add some stability as I get shakier in my
older years. I am mainly looking for butterflies, but sometimes have to
settle for bees, etc.
I hear you on the weight. I use my P-L 14-150 so much that I often just
settle for its covering most of the same range as the 80-200. The speed of
the latter is an advantage in the viewfinder though.
The shoulder stock is a great idea and you are certainly showing its value.
My brother and I went kayaking a week ago and came across about a dozen
large yellow butterflies that liked warming themselves on the river mud.
Wished I'd had some form of shooter. Had never seen their like.
