Personally, I don't think that lens is sharp enough to justify it's massive size and weight for current use on an m4/3 kit. It was the first wide range normal to long telephoto zoom ever made, and while special in it's day, it has long been surpassed by modern lenses.

It'll be a cold day in hell when you convince D-buck to part from his legacies!!!
With 20 elements in 13 groups and weighing 2.3 kilos it sure isn't something to carry in your shirt pocket. This one is an early mid 60's model with the silver nose that has had a factory AI conversion done on it.
