Hi shoturtle: No, its just your basic Sigma DC digital 55-200 zoom in the 4/3 mount. I think that the usual internet discount price ranges about $145 -$149 so I probably saved about 50 bucks.

I wish it was the high grade lens, but I could not resist the cheap price. So far I don't regret the purchase considering the price. But you have to appreciate the little Oly 40-150mm kit lens, especially when you see how much larger and fatter the Sigma lens is in order to gain that extra 50mm reach.

It would probably look really big attached to your new Pen!

(While it's not the Oly 50-200, it didn't make a dent in my budget either!)

Yeah, I think it would be a bit large on my epl-1. That was one of the reasons I got the panasonic 45-200mm instead of going for a 4/3 oly 40-150 that is packaged as a 2 lens kit in Europe. It saves some room in the camera bag

H, Steven

I really enjoy your photos - they show me things I haven't seen in the places I've lived through the years.
