Agree with the other reply

From what I've read, and the reviews I've seen, the only way in which the 45-200mm is better is that it has IS, which may be really important if your a panny shooter.

I have the 4/3 version of the 40-150mm, and not only is it tiny--just slightly longer and heavier than the m43 version, even including the adapter--it's sharp and contrasty at all focal lengths. One of my favorite lenses. If the m43 version uses the same optical formula it should be just as good.

I like it so much I often use it on my G1, with lacks IS. You're faced with the same limitations as with legacy lenses, but given enough light it's not usually a problem. And the lens is so darn light and compact there's hardly any reason to leave it home.
