There is an Olympus Zuiko 40-150 lens for sale locally. How would I know if it is a Mk I or Mk II version? The seller wants $125 for it.

The MKI is a big lens with a metal mount. And a round lens hood. The MKII is a bit bigger than the 14-42 with a plastic mount and a petal shaped hood. The Front element does not rotate on the MKII. The Zoom on the MKI requires a lot of turning and on the MKII its a short twist. The MKI starts at f/3.5 and the MKII at f/4

Actually I don't know why we are going on like this as you have the 12-60 and the 70-300 and that covers a lot of ground with a fair amount of travel. The 40-150 is a nice to have lens and you will know when you need one. But I would not spend $125 on it yet. Get some extra batteries.
