Today I did what I had intended to do in order to assess the performance of the 50-200 SWD on the E-M1 compared to the E-5.

Cat Dude-If I confirm your experience with my new EM-1 and a tryout 50-200 you will have cost me $1100.Do you feel bad?Thank you for the review(really)

If you shoot much the same type of subjects as I show here, then the 50-200 should be fine.

Your other option, if you don't need the long end that much, is to wait for the native MicroFT 40-150 f/2.8.  It seems likely that this lens will perform better than the 50-200.
