I picked up a 100-300 at the end of January. Then this week the 45-200 goes on sale for $100 at Best Buy. I went out and picked one up. Yes I get that they're probably just clearing out old stuff, maybe it's now discontinued. But so now I have both. I don't need both. Don't even want both. Really I don't. The few time I've had a chance to use the 100-300 I've been under 200mm and I've also run into a situation where I had to change back to my 14-42 because the 100mm was just too long. I also kind of like how the 450-200 balances better. I know the extra 200-300 would be nice at times and I have not had a chance to use it at BBall games either, which is the main reason I got a telephoto. We spent enough on the tickets I was sure going to have a lens to use. If I keep the 100-300 I'll have ~$150 that I was planning on getting a 14mm with. It I keep the 45-200 I'll have $450 to play with. 14mm + Oly 45 1.8 Sig 60 2.8 Maybe even sell off the E-PM1 for an E-PM2/E-PL5.
