    Great deal if you can find a store that carries it. I picked up the lens used for $160 not long ago.

    Thanks for the tip! Found one a 30 min drive away - they only had one and I snagged it.

    I ordered the Oly 40-150 for $99 as well. But it's still out of stock as of today.

    I want to get this now too. Is this better than the Oly?

    I think they are pretty comparable. Main advantage of the Panny is OIS for owners of Panny cameras.

    I have an Oly 40-150mm - used once. I'll sell it for $99 + $10 shipping - paypal gift. PM me if interested.

    Sorry, I got mine new @ $107 shipped. But still waiting for Olympus to replenish their stock.

    Just thought I might cancel it and get the 45-200.

    Will you be using it on a Panny body or an Oly body? Can you use the extra reach (150mm vs 200mm)? If you answered yes to either question, you should probably consider getting the Panny.

    I have both. The 45-200 has built in IS, which makes it stabilized for both Olympus and Panasonic bodies, whereas the 40-150 doesn't. The latter is noticeably lighter, however. They seem similar in terms of optical quality.
