    Curious to hear whatever opinions you may have on this lens regarding the I.Q.

    Bruce, I don't have any experience with this lens - however, I'm sure some of the micro four thirds members will have some thoughts to share as they come on to the forum.

    It's just like the 4/3 version which is to say that it is quite good. I ended up selling mine but it was not because of IQ but because I rarely used it.

    I have the 4/3 40-150 and use it via the Oly adapter. I can say am really impressed by the IQ, especially sharpnes and contrast. There are days in wich I do not take it of the camera. Actually I like it's IQ more than that of the original 14-42 micro lens. According to me it has one real shortcoming - AF speed. It is sensibly slower than that of the original micro lenses. But if you like the 40-150 mm range and you don't mind the slower AF I think you will be quite happy with that lens. :smile:

    Thanks! This really helps convince me that the lens is up to what I would hope for.
