If it is the ft3 rumored 40-150 but f 4,.0 it is not far from my forecast.

i'd prefer the size and range of a 40-150 f4 than a 2.8... given the size of the Pany a 40-150 is going to really be pushing m43 into larger camera territory and competition

If the lens is for real, I'm guessing (hoping) that it won't be constant f/2.8. I think the right way to go is to position it somewhere between the existing cheap but good oly 40-150 and the new 35-100. Make it f/2.8 at 40mm and f/4 or so at 150m, and give it similar optical performance as the current 40-150. Retail for around $700.
