It gives me amazingly sharp results at 200mm... some of the time.

What I have discovered with this lens is that sometimes "in focus" is not really "in focus" at all. Dropping to magnified MF mode to touch-up will get things right in critical shots, and more often than not, very, very sharp.

To the OP: doesn't sound like a good deal. In fact, for $900-$1000, I would look to get the GH2 new, lensless, and pick up the 14- 45 + 45-175 (or new 45-150) for a great matched kit. Though the 45-200 is no slouch, it is a lot larger.
