Olympus has announced a collection of new developments in its Micro Four Thirds Pen mirror-less interchangeable, or 'hybrid', Pen camera system. These include a new high power telephoto zoom, the m.Zuiko Digital 75-300mm ED f/4.8-5.6 (equivalent to 150-600mm) and m.Zuiko Digital 40-150 ED f/4-5.6 (equivalent to 80-300mm). There are also new Pen E-P2 kits featuring a black version of the m.Zuiko Digital 17mm pancake lens, previously only available in silver.

I think the speed of the 70-300 is actually f4.8 to f6.7......................

The 75-300 is not only slow, but expensive, I've seen $900 quoted.
Sorry, for such a slow lens that's overprices for me.
Not going to get into my kit bag.
