For my part I've considered change but recently found a used Sigma 105mm macro lens (which with only little use I assume is an acquired taste) so I'll stick around at least until next winter when I sit around watching birds and cursing the fact that I have to give up as the sun goes toward the horizon or the overcast skies deepen – just what the birds are waiting for to come out and get that last meal. Then I'll again crave a better sensor and that 300mm f/4 lens (the 2.8 is too big and cost more than I'll invest in bird watching.) … Actually, I'll probably still be here at the next photokina, as I have a great propensity to procrastinate....   

Enjoy the 105 its a great lens and works well. AF is slow but its a macro.

It Also has a focus limiter and true manual focus that is accurate. The standoff compared it the Olympus stuff is magic.  I really enjoy mine. It has home on the E-30 at the moment.

300m f/4 or a 400mm f/5.6 would be on the money for me.

Enjoy your lens. With the current Economic times I will also probably still be around here for a while.
