I have the 50-200mm, and use it with the G9. First thing is the previously I was using the panasonic 100-300 for longer end of the zoom range, and I was getting something like 1/30 decent BIF shots....basically useless. With the 50-200mm the AF speed in the same situation seems like more than 10x faster. Where the 100-300 would seem to take even over 1 second, with the 50-200 it is basically instant. The end result is the keeper ratio for moving subjects is almost 100% (not counting when I miss the framing ).

A pro review should be better than mine for IQ, but if there is anything I can add I will see what I can do. This is the m43 best lens I have used. I have used the 100-400 but not long term. I have not used the Oly 40-150 though.

just curious - which 100-300 did you use ver 1 or ver 2?  ihave the 100-300 v2 and was

planning on getting the 50-200 but was wondering how much faster that PL's AF motor is vs the 100-300 v2.
