EX3 with Fujinon A20X8.6BRM ?

Hi all,

I would appreciate any input from people who use this lens. I need a longer zoom lens than the stock lens for my wildlife work.
Thanks,

Ofer

I'd be a little worried using an SD 2/3" lens on the EX3. I'd be incredibly worried about using it with the 2x extender engaged. Although this lens has no extender, yes? It's the BERM that has a 2x.

Try it and see. Not much help I know but there is so much variation form lens to lens, even within the same product line that it's almost impossible to know. While 2/3" lenses are possible not the best match for 1/2" cameras, you are only using the center part of the image which should be the sharpest.
