I hope 45/50-150mm will be in their plan. Wait and see.

Wouldn't be surprised as they have reduced the 40-150mm to $99 which could be considered clear-out...

Thanks. I just checked it and looks like they are clearing current stocks. Yes, Olympus we need newer and faster zoom lens. Weather seal will be a bonus

I don't think there's any chance they'll stop selling this lens. I didn't look at the sale you're looking at. Maybe it's for the "non-R" version, but the non-R 40-150 has already been replaced by the 40-150 R (which by the way is essentially the same lens with a different texture on the barrel..) They may make a faster telephoto zoom, but it'll be expensive. It won't be a replacement for the current 40-150.
