Zoom lenses and squirrels
1

It's impossible to get close to squirrels, so I need Panasonic (or JIP?) to make me a 200-600mm zoom lens. Possible?

I guess the other zoom lenses would do the job, but why settle for less?

Just had my humble Olympus 40-150mm zoom and I didn't get any decent photos before the squirrels ran away, but surprisingly I managed to get something usable out of the following shot:

There was apparently a Sigma 300-800mm lens for the Four-thirds system, so why nothing like that for M4/3?
