Summary: i had this on my wishlist for longer than a year. A fellow Olympus shooter had this lens and was on the verge of moving into low light photography (read moving into Canon). i was given the opportunity to acquire this lens due to that move. Have no regrets with the acquisition. One thing though, it is heavy.
Having this lens in your hand is like holding Excalibur!

Summary: I've used canon lenses and I've used many other zooms and I'm telling you right now that NOTHING compares to the optical quality of this lens when used in the right conditions (a lot of light). This lens has a sweet spot right at 70mm when stopped down to F4... WOW, it's absolutely perfect across the frame! This sweet spot continues all the way through 100mm when stopped down to F4. I have taken portraits with this lens that would totally blow your mind away.
Summary: This is my second 50-200mm. The first didn't fare too well with a 130+ foot drop off a rock face ( I said more than oops). I had to have another. The old 50-200mm had become my go-to lens and usually stayed right on the body of my E-3. (Get one and see if you don't do the same.) As their price reflects, Zuiko lenses are all well above average. I could have gotten other lenses and an adapter for less money...but you get what you pay for.
Summary: recien lo he recibido pero lo poco que lo he usado me parece un objetivo exelente y lo recomiendo.-la verdad que hace unas fotos excelente muy luminosas, lo que si recomiendo buen pulso o si no tripode ademas de una camara con estabilizador de imagen, asi que a sacar muchas fotos
Fast, long and not too heavy ... Superb sharpness!

Summary: Save for this stellar lens - you will NOT regret it after its slightly heavier mass settles into your palm. E series cameras are also quiet and this lens seems to damp what little noise remains further. Timid (wild animals especially) subjects probably appreciate this aspect. Give the 70-300 and the 40-150 a miss! I've owned both and they are OK. You'll appreciate the range, speed and sharpness!
