    My test report of this lens is now available at Camera Ergonomics I found it to be a very good performer, almost identical in most situations to the excellent Olympus 40-150mm. They are both very good value compact mid range tele zooms.

    Thanks for the review/testing, I can't wait to try it out myself, price wise it's also very affordable, down here it's on backorder, have been waiting two weeks now, good news is that in that period it's dropped in price from 279 euro to 234 ;-)

    I just purchased a Lumix 45-150 myself.... actually, I finally just received it after it was backordered for a couple of months. Andrew, I read your report but perhaps you could be just a bit more specific in comparing this new 45-150 directly against the 45-200 that it replaces. If the old lens was at its best in the 45-100mm range, how is the new lens there? And while obviously both lenses are at their weakest point at their extreme long end, how do the lenses compare at 150mm? Thanks again for your report!

    I'm not Andrew but, in my own testing, the 2 lenses are very close at 150mm. Having said that, I get more keepers with the 45-200mm since the extra weight makes hand holding easier.
