    Hello,

    I just got my first m43 camera (e-p3) and would like to get a zoom lens.

    From what I've read, the Oly 40-150 seems to be a good choise (Quality/budget).

    I was wondering if anyone could provide feedback on the difference between the older version and the new "R" version. The exterior has changed but I can't find what, if any, changes were made to the actual specs/performance...

    Thanks!

    Sean

    I was shopping for one months back and I think what I read was that it was just a cosmetic change. I liked the looks of the R, so got that one.

    I have the original 4/3rds 40-150 too and they are all on par. Just get whichever look/color/price suits you.
