    Hello,

    The Olympus 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 M.Zuiko Lens for Olympus (Black) & (Silver) has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available. With only the E5 remaining as their sole 4/3rd camera ( non micro ) my guess is they are cutting back on lens options. No replacement is listed by Olympus.

    Chuck, I think you are thinking of the original 4/3 lens which is a 70-300mm. My guess would be there is a cosmetic redesign of the 75-300mm in the works (the current m4/3 version) as the current design matches 1st generation Olympus m4/3 lens construction.

    Chuck,

    Just to clarify - the link is to a m4/3's lens and we are specifically ask about m4/3's.

    Thanks,
    - David
