Ordered the E-M1 w/12-40MM F2.8 Pro; Comparable Medium Zoom?
9 months ago

(last post April 2008)

Headed to safaris in Kenya, South Africa, and Swaziland April 24 and have decided to go light. Very happy with ordering the OM-D Em-1 and ED 12-40MM F2.8 PRO LENS.  Nikon stays home.

What can I order for my new Olympus that is going to replace my Nikon 70-200 2.8 VRII?  I would like to have a premium quality Olympus lens for this focal range, but it does not seem one is yet available, and I may be looking at what, the prime 75mm 1.8 until the Pro series gives us something to zoom in the 80-200 range?

Or, simply interim buying the $549, 75-300 zoom, but then I'm worried about picture quality.

Thanks so much for your advice.
