...I was looking to buy a 50-200 SWD on ebay UK and contrary to what people are suggesting they{ Oly HG and SHG lenses} are not in abundant supply at all. In fact it took me several weeks to find one that fitted the bill , now I just need a fully functioning mFT body with full speed AF to put it on

Hi Jim,

Not to rain on your parade or anything like that, but if that m4/3 wish were possible today it would have happened already. Maybe someday but not this year. With the coming of a new DSLR release from Olympus that will focus 4/3 lenses and have an optical viewfinder,  the best camera for fast autofocus with the 50-200 lens is an Olympus DSLR. It's not going to be a replacement of the hot new, best-selling MILC, OM-D EM-5.

I am glad you got a good deal on this wonderful HG lens. Best of luck with it.
