    Nice! I'd bet this goes with the 300mm f/4 they've announced as well.

    I agree, hopefully it's not specific to the 40-150mm f/2.8 as I'd certainly buy one if I could use it with a couple of the faster m4/3 tele lenses.

    Very nice! This will make the 300 useful to me. Very cool.

    I use the Nikon 300/4 AF-S with the matched 1.4x TC - it's a very portable and potent combination. Technique is at a premium with that pair, though, and will be with the Oly pair.

    That would be fantastic. I don't mind using my Canon EF 400mm, but auto focus would be really nice to have with a long lens.

    This is awesome news! I don't think it will be specific to the 40-150 lens. I think/hope it will work with the 75/1.8 and 300/4 lenses as well.
