"While the lens may not give you the typical Olympus razor sharp image output at the longer end, it performs very well in the 12-100mm zoom range." Doesn't appear to me that there is any question about it: neither the 75-300 or the new 12-200 are good at the long end.

I can understand why the 12-200 wouldn't be optimized for the long end, it's less likely to be used there. But there's no excuse for the 75-300, you buy a long zoom because you want the reach. You're more likely to be using at the max, wishing you had more.
