That panasonic lens is 2x heavier than Oly and weighs a lot more than the camera itself, I don't beleive it's a good fit for m43 cameras.

Come again?

40-150 = 190g
45-200 = 380g
E-PL1 w/battery: 344g

You may not like hefting that monstrous extra weight of 190g/6.7oz around, but is it as big a deal as you made it out to be? Probably not. Also, the 45-200 certainly doesn't weigh "a lot more" than any m43 camera. You may not find it to be a good fit for m43, but many people do.

I agree this is a good deal, but as you may have guessed, I already own a 45-200 so I'll leave a 40-150 on the shelf for someone else.
