    I like the 40-150 R lens. I got it for only $99 when I bought an EM5, and I've found it to be quite sharp and contrasty for such an inexpensive lens. Took a lot of soccer game photos with it. My main gripe is that the zoom ring is rather stiff and one can feel the plastic parts moving around. It's a great travel lens in this range because it's so small and light. I've been using a Panasonic Lumix 45-200 zoom to shoot the soccer games recently for the extra reach, but still feel the 40-150 to be better IQ wise.

    Given the low price, would it be a good choice for use with the gx7 vs the lumix 45-150, considering the stabilization ? IQ ? Thanks ...

    I believe the Lumix 45-150 would still be a better option for GX7.
