Then I guess I'm confused here Mike.

I was asking about the Tamron 28-300of whichI thought I'd get the 35mm eqiv. of 56-600. Close to the Zuiko 70-300 top end (140-600) but with IS. (or VS) Thats the range I'm interested in here.

The leica, as you say is 14-150, (28-300) perhaps I'm missing something here. Is my assumption correct on sizing.
You would be right, assuming you could get the Tamron for the Olympus body. All you'd be doing with the Leica is matching the kit lenses sold with the E410/510 bodies....of course, with the added option of image stabilization.

i think i see a e520/510 in your future, along with a zd 70-300

i wonder if oly's IS could pry me away from a tripod @ 300+ mm.

No, you were asking about a 135/35mm lens that was a focal length of 28-300mm, and the FourThirds equivalent of that lens is 14-150...that's where the confusion was.

What you should have just asked was if there is a FourThirds lens that covered the range of 28-300mm.

The only choices I would have suggested would be the Oly 70-300, or the Sigma 50-500, but no in-lens IS with those choices...there's very few FourThirds lenses that have such a long zoom range (the only other is the Oly 18-180 which again is covered by the kit lenses).

The only other way to accomplish this is with a legacy lens, as there have been OM long zoom lenses in that range.

On my photo demonstration page (see my recent thread), I've been expanding the selection of photos and I've recently added some 70-300mm photos.

The one in this link is at the full 300mm zoom (I just checked the exif). This is hand held using the E-510 with the car coming at me at about 50mph. This is the full, uncropped frame.

Check this out and then check the two 800x600 pixel100% crops that immediately follow it. To see them at full resolution, click on "Larger size" and open the window to full screen. Notice the detail like the easily readable "Quattro" emblem. Click "Next Photo" to get to the two 100% crops.

I use a tripod when practical...but that's rarely possible with the action photos I do. I doubt if I've shot even 1% of my long photos on a tripod.
