I would not term the images Robin captured at 200mm as all that awful. If you accept the lens is going to be in the same class as of the 14-150 and not a 12-100mm f4, for the few times I would venture into the 100-200mm range with that lens, it looks good enough as a substitute for a heavier setup and a step up from the small travel zoom compacts I would not spend money on today.

When I elect to use the 12-100mm f4, I also carry the 40-150mm f2.8 and use it first as a 150mm f2.8 prime....a prime I could also use instead of the 12-100mm when needing to zoom somewhere else between 101-149mm to get a shot.

Could the 12-200 be a decent option to use that bridges the gap between a 7-14mm f2.8 and 300mm f4? No idea, but I anticipate receiving an email sometime next week from Olympus that a copy of the 12-200mm is headed my way to try in that exact fashion.
