    Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f/4-5.6 "R" Zoom Lens, Black, for Micro Four Thirds System at Adorama for $99. I don't know if that is great deal or not. I purchased the 40-150 when it first came out at ~$150. That is/was a good daylight lens. I don't know anything about the "R" edition.

    That lens has been that price for months, actually. Sometimes I wonder if Olympus plans to ever charge full price for any lens ever again.

    Best bang for your buck lens I have come across.

    How can a really good lens like that be so much cheaper than eg the very average 12-50? Don't tell me a few o-rings cost that much :rolleyes-38:

    Agree that this lens is a great bargain. With good enough light, it is a sharp performer.

    The R lens is the usual edition for this lens. It's good, especially on the wide end.

    Sheesh, no sooner did I mention that the sale price has been going on for months Olympus has ended the special and it's back to $200 along with many of the other non-pro lenses.
