Yes that is an interesting interview. It's a pity he didn't answer the question about whether they will produce a long telephoto zoom similar to the Panasonic 100-400. Hopefully they will.

I use Firefox and it was OK on my machine. It is Imaging Resource which is a respected site and I can't see anything out of the ordinary on that page.

I'd much prefer a x2 TC (with built-in Lens IS working with the IBIS) matched to the 40-150 Pro.
Wouldn't need to have or carry an additional relatively bulky lens - really useful for those of us for whom BIF and sports is a less than full-time pursuit.

As for the interview; it's a shame that Dave Etchells spent so much time grandstanding and got so little specific info from Olympus.
