    Very similar to this lens, but a slightly later version, the Vivitar Series 1 70-120 f/2.8-4 is a lens renown for high build and image quality, but is unfortunately rather too large to be practical on Micro Four Thirds. Nonetheless, here are a few sample images:

    I love this lens, I consider it one of the best I've ever tried.,
    The lens works superbly even at F/2.8 aperture at 210mm

    I'd been waiting for deal on this version and it finally came up. A nice clean copy. Zoom is a tad loose but very manageable. This is at 210mm @ f5.6 or so.
