Why not go for the Panasonic 45-200 as here: http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthre...677#post179677

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Search...uctInformation

That way you'll have a proper m43 lens and not an unweildy 43 lens on the end of the additional MMF-1 or MMF-2 adapter you'll also need?
Oh... and save around 100 as well after cashback, and have a brand new warranted lens.

You WILL NOT like the 70-300 on the PEN believe me, I tried it on my E-PL1 and it was useless - far too big for the body.

Re: Olympus Zuiko Digital 70-300mm

I use my ZD70-300 lens on my E-M5 quite successfully, but I wouldn't buy one to use on a M4/3's body. The Panasonic 100-300 would be a good buy being cheaper (price) than the Oly M75-300 lens (with both being good fast focussing lenses).
