What are the widest apertures at the different FL on the Panasonic 50-200?

I realize this is a random question.

But I am just curious how this compares to the 100-300mm which I already own.

To the best of my memory (and I will test this shortly) the 200mm on the 100-300 is already at 4.5, which means the 50-200 will have the wider widest aperture at 200mm as the lens is 2.8-4.

I guess my question is how quick does the 50-200 get to f4? 100mm? 150? if 150, that's impressive because that means the 100 also has a wider aperture on the 50-200 as the 100-300's widest is F4 at 100. And to be clear, I am WELL aware there is a price difference between these lenses.

Honestly, I am just curious and if someone is bored and wants to test out the widest apertures on the "marked" focal lengths on 50-200mm, I'd appreciate your assistance in curing my curiosity.

On a related note, for those that care, I may post the same for the 100-300 in a follow up entry on this thread.
