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.

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.

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 , 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.
