    There's already a thread on the Native Lens section. But not sure if there's a difference with the four thirds version vs the micro four thirds version of this lens.

    I haven't got a chance to try the m4/3 version of 40-150 but AFAIK the ZD 40-150mm mk I have faster aperture f/3.5 vs f/4.0. Some say the older is better in sharpness (13 element in 10 groups vs 12 element in 9 groups) but the newer 40-150 mk II better in minimum focusing distance (1.5 m vs 0.9 m).

    I have the opportunity of buying a 40-150 3.5-4.5 that I would give to wife.
    She would use it on a Panasonic G1 through an adapter.

    Can you tell if this lens focuses fast and reliable on micro 4/3 cameras ?
