    grand valley, on
    those are not micro 4/3rds versions.

    you will need an adaptor to run these.

    Crap, you're right. Doesn't the M always stand for Micro? And wasn't the R version introduced only for the M43 variant? I see now that they description doesn't match the title but usually when that happens they simply neglected to change the description.

    Yes. Wrong title in auction listing.

    The whole listing is a mess. Title says f/4- but description says f/3.5-

    They've obviously mixed up the specs between the 4/3 and micro 4/3 models.

    I'd ask them to confirm which it is or cancel.

    Only the last one is for Four Thirds, and it doesn't include M or R.

    Yeah, the description actually makes it clear that this is the 4/3 version, and not Micro 4/3. I sent a message to the seller to clarify to them that it should be 'Zuiko', not 'M.Zuiko'. It is a good deal though, if you are looking for the 4/3 lens.

    Thanks for writing to the seller. Your message must have helped: He just sent me a refund!

    Thanks, @PakkyT@PakkyT , but Roberts Camera just listed 15 factiry-reconditioned silver 40-150 R lenses on EBay-- 11 in VG condition for $80 shipped and 4 in EX condition for $90 shipped--or make an offer. I offered $70 for a VG. Roberts declined, but they accepted my next offer: $75.
