That's the F/4 version of the lens.

Nice lens but I've always preferred the f/5 version because of the more compact size and lower CA's wide open.
Probably my f/4 copy wasn't the best.

Still, 400mm @ f/4 (effective) is quite impressive and the wonderful EVF of the E-M5 gives new life to OM lenses!
