    Well the Olympus is smaller but lacks IS if you are a Panasonic users, so that something to think about.

    If the price is right grab the 45-200, I think it is a great lens for the money.

    I picked this up a few months back. It really is a nice lens for the money. I was pleasantly surprised.

    I would have loved a 200 on the cheap. But having gotten the O45-150; I'll just wait out the release of the O75-300.

    Thank for the heads up, purchased on this morning. Bought an E PM1 refurb, received it yesterday. New user here. My last digital camera was 2.2MP. I look forward to learning a lot from this site!

    Looks Like I just picked up one of the last ones in New England. Now I just have to decide if I want the 45-200 (+ $300) or 100-300

    Darn! I went to Best Buy WeHo and they tried to sell me their open box model. I swear that has to be the worst BB in LA. I hope that location goes under. This isn't the first time I've had to deal with their terrible customer service. What annoyed me is that they tried making me feel like I was scamming them, even though it's a direct BB deal! :mad:

    Great lens but due to purple CA, works best with Panasonic bodies IMHO....I'll keep mine in use until the sometime in the future when I migrate to the new M. Zuiko 75-300....

    I've had good luck at the one in Culver City in the Fox Hills Mall, at least service wise when I went there last time.
