Thanks Walter - another possibility is always welcome. I can look on the internet all day but would much rather consider something that someone else here already uses and recommends. Seems people are pretty forthright about their opinions. IS is not a real concern for me as I will use a tripod for most of my shooting and this lens does not look that long or heavy to where hand-held would be a strong negative. The price on Amazon is about $294/298 which isn't bad. Of course, with the Panasonic I would not need the adaptor but...........I don't know what the price will be (their macro must be gold plated, lol) and I don't know when it will come out. So, this Oly is certainly a viable alternative. Do you have any pics of birds or wildlife you have taken with this lens so I could get an idea of the size and quality? And, as you said, I could always buy another close-up lens to add to it.
