The 45-200mm is a great lens, and it saves a bit of size and weight over the sigma and MMF1. I have it, and it is very fast to AF on the EPL-1. And super quite.

That is great news! I just got one over on E-Bay, and I was saying to myself, "Ihope it is good and reasonable in size.

Excellent Series, Shoturtle-

I really like how it appears that lens works on the EPL1. Thanks for providing the link. I appreciate it a lot.

I edited it for you. We don't allow for sale posts in the forums (and that includes posting links to where you have the items for sale elsewhere), as we consider that to be using the forums for commercial purposes, which is against our rules.

This is already in the works We are thinking of an "EVIL" (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) section so it's not limited to the Olympus/Panasonic mount system.

Thank you very much, Billy-

That seems very much like a logical solution to incorporate as many EVIL cameras as possible. Great progress!
