Amazon has the Olympus M. 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R Zoom Lens (Black or Silver) for Olympus and Panasonic Micro 4/3 Cameras for $99.00 shipped.
So in full frame equivalent it is 80-300mm.

Even got free same day delivery with prime so that's nice.

Quote :
3.75x zoom lens
Macro Focus Range : 0.90 m, Focal Length : 40-150 mm
Lightweight, portable design, 80-300mm equivalent field of view
Nearly silent movie and still compatible auto-focus, Perfect choice for second lens
Great for portraits and sports
This is a good cheap zoom lens recommended by The Wirecutter http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/...-zoom-lens

NO in lens image stabilization so Panasonic owners be warned (except those lucky few with in body stabilization, but I think you guys probably want in lens too to utilize the double stabilization).

Very good lens for the price. And very good price for the lens. The Pro version of this costs almost 15x as much.
Sometimes slightly cheaper refurb'd after coupon at the Olympus Outlet.

Very cool lens. I recently picked up an Olympus C-210 old-school teleconverter for an upcoming Alaska trip. I heard good things about this teleconverter and pairing it with this lens, so decided to give it a shot. It looks like it may work out! Wanted to do that versus buying a 300mm lens

You do get a 1 year warranty by buying new compared to the 90 day warranty with a refurb.

I have been looking for one of those on the "bay", without much luck. The Oly 75-300 isn't that great IMO, and the new 300... not affordable.

True... but we're talking about a $100 lens here.

This is a good deal. I bought this lens for $200 like 2 years ago. But, sometimes I need more. If you're ok with 200mm range then you'll be fine. I wish I would have bought up to 300mm.

Heh, there's a guy in Russia who has been selling them new. The one I got was from some warehouse liquidator in Florida and listed it as "new - other" but declined to mention that the caps and pouch were missing >:T Partially my fault as I should have inquired beforehand. Then again, there weren't many other options (I wasn't going to risk ordering from Russia to have it arrive *after* leaving for the cruise) so I jumped on this. I ended up paying $35 for it, which is what I should have paid for one that included the caps and pouch. Of course, the seller was unwilling to refund for any of this as it was "described accurately" (BS - they shouldn't have listed as new other!). The TC itself is in pretty good condition, and I ended up buying some snap-in lens caps for it which seem to work OK.

Bought this for $90 as a refurb on eBay and have found it to be an amazing piece of consumer glass. Super sharp except at the very extreme end of the zoom range and lightning fast AF. $100 for a non-refurb model with a full warranty strikes me as a very good deal indeed.

Sure I wish it had a metal mount, but these micro 4/3 lenses are so light and tiny, I'm not sure that's nearly the durability concern it was the much larger, heavier 35mm/DSLR format lenses.

Unless you're a professional, this lens is a near must-buy for the micro 4/3rds owner.

This is so good for the price I kept mine even after purchasing the 40-150 Pro.

A good deal at $99. It's not amazing but there are no major flaws.
