Is it because I do not like slow telephoto zoom lenses?

I was part of my fathers heritage. He got it as part of e-PL3 kit. I paid nothing. I do not use it.

The pictures are sharp enough, no reasonable pillow, no fugly bouquet. You get a 300mm compared to 35mm film - amazing and it is cheap.

It is just because it is a 5,6 on four thirds sensor. No indoor available light and a large depth of field. That are the reasons why Olympus makes the 40-150 2.8 PRO (with a totally different price tag). For the rest of us:  Save the money, save some more and go for the Olympus 75 1.8.
