I think the reason there's so little discussion here is that the lens is expensive enough to deter most potential users. Where I am, in the UK, I'm looking at £1200 or so for the 50-200mm f/2.8-4, versus £730 for the 40-150 f/2.8. I really want the 50-200, largely because it's lighter and smaller, but it seems over-priced.

That's because it is overpriced.

$1,700 for a variable aperture zoom? I don't know what they're smoking over there in the Panasonic camp. That lens should be under $1,000

Prices I am seeing in $A with taxes are 1500 for the 40-150 and best price 1800 for the 50-200.   That puts both around the US$1000 mark.
