I just need to know for certain as to whether or not a 40-150mm dedicated micro 4/3 lens exists without the need for the MMF2 adaptor. The Olympus website leads me to believe that it is real. I went to Crowne Camera today to purchase the lense and I was told that Olympus doesn't make a dedicated lense...the use of the adaptor is needed. Can you please help?

The list price via Olumpus website is $299. I got the lense, adaptor and 2 UV filters for $265. Oh, plus a tennis ball and a free class.

So does the dedicated micro 4/3 Olympus 40-150mm lense exist?

And if you need more evidence:
Olympus - M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6
'm.Zuiko' means a native micro four thirds lens

Danny, you are partially confusing the 14-150 with the 40-150. I think most people would get the 14-150 in preference, except it's twice the price.

I think some people have had auto-focus issues with the 4/3 40-150 used via the adaptor on a m4/3 body. The native m4/3 would hopefully perform better, and at least would be shorter without the need for an adaptor.

Sorry, to drag this thread back up, but I'm trying to find info on the m.zuiko 40-150. There seems to be no in-depth review of it.

The AF on the 4/3 40-150mm + adapter is accurate enough, just not particularly fast.
