What makes the R version special? I have looked but found nothing yet.

No, just more modern (less retro) style.

Edit: Found it. Looks as if the R version has more metal ...probably a metal bayonet mount.

No, plastic.

Thanks for the heads up. When I read this ..

The latest generation of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm 1:4.0-5.6 R (35mm equivalent focal length: 80-300mm) has now arrived. It features a brand new optimised overall design in a stylish metal look.
...I thought maybe a metal barrel and mount.

I guess that is good news. Now I can save some money with a demo model.
