150mm does not equal 200mm

What about the extra 50mm it has on the tele end? Blow-up the Oly 150mm lens pictures to equate to 200mm and you will like the Panasonic pictures a whole lot better.

The 45-200mm is every bit as sharp and "contrasty" as the Oly lens @ 150mm. It just has the added benefit of going all the way to 200mm with IS. That is worth a lot in my book. Maybe not $140 though.

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.
