good points, I think I'd rather the lighter. Right now I have a Nikon DSLR and pack the 70-300VR with me, and that puppy is really heavy after a couple hours. Like it makes your neck look like a buzzard LOL
I'm wanting light stuff now!

Man that little oly lens is 7.8oz!! My 70-300 is 26.2oz
Oly body is 475 grams
D40 body is 482 grams
So the body is a teeny bit lighter, but man the zoom will be almost a quarter the weight, nice! My 18-55 kit lens is 9.3oz so this is lighter then that, oh man that's gonna be heaven!
If I get the 70-300 later, it's still only 21oz and gives me effective of 600mm. I can't imagine what a 400mm (effective 600) nikon lens would feel like around my neck
