Oly 40-150 Worth It for $99?
1

It seems that all major retailers have dropped the price on this lens and it is now $99 new from Amazon, B and H, Best Buy, Adorama, etc.

I have the Panasonic 45-200 that came with my G85 and I plan on keeping it at least for the weather sealing. But at first glance, IQ could be better. I doubt I would have bought the lens by itself. Still happy to have it though. How does the Oly compare for those who have tried both? I figure for $100, I can't really go wrong as an experiment. The noticeably smaller size seems worth it as I rarely need to exceed 300mm (35mm equiv).

For reference, I have the G85 and GX85 bodies. Think this is a worthy purchase? Thanks for any replies!
