I can deal with big lenses - but for the time being I usually attach them to an E-30.  The 50-200mm currently living on the E-30 fills most of the gap I see in my m4/3 lineup.  It does attract a lot of attention from security folk, though...especially with the hood mounted.

I'm thinking that a nice, bright 135mm is the logical next step for Olympus.  It would be nice if it were smaller than the Tokina 500mm mirror.  That, and the 75mm, pretty much define the point at which I would start to really wish for an E-70 (or even an E-7) body.  I *could* attach the 50-200mm to the OM-D, but I choose not to.

Speaking of the Tokina 500mm mirror - does anyone currently sell a comparable lens that is significantly better?  I've had that lens for over 30 years, perhaps it's time for an update?
