Thane, you will not regret buying this lens

Yes, there are better telephoto zooms for 4/3 out there, but at 4-8 times the price.

For $300, this lens is an absolute bargain.

And it does a reasonably good job as a macro lens too.

The best part is.... you really aren't risking very much, so it's a no brainer. Owning this lens is like a 1971 VW Beetle. You buy it, use it for five years, then sell it for around what you paid for it.

Those folks who are selling their 70-300mm lenses for $300 probably paid $350 for them brand new and used them for years. So they only spent $50 for using this great lens. And you will someday do the very same thing. Unless you're like me. I can't ever seem to part with a lens once I have it.
