Re: A couple of other reasons...

Hi George,

I'm intrigued by your second image of what appears to be a m4/3 camera on the end of the ZD300mm lens.

Is that in fact a ZD300mm ?  If so it has some interesting differences to mine.

- your hood has a much more textured surface, mine is much smoother (but still textured)
- the tripod mounting foot on yours seems to be about 2cm longer and has a different profile
Mine (bought Aug last year) looks to be the same as the one shown on the Oly USA web site.

Is yours an older version ? I'm wondering whether Olympus has tweaked the design over the years.
