Have a great day.

Yes sarah you are correct the 14-150 is new lens for the m4/3 but you can get an adapter to get it to fit the e620. Thank you for pointing it out. Been all caught up with the new epl-1 and the new lenses. It will not be available till april or may.

My mistake, been reading to many rumors. They are considering making an adapter for the E's to use m4/3 lens. Sorry about the confusion. Been way to excited about the new epl-1.

Here is a better example, a XS or XSi with a tammy 28-300mm or 18-200mm 18-250mm and 18-270mm lens.

There is an Olympus 18-180mm lens... which translates to 36-360mm in full-frame terms. $399:

There's also an Olympus 70-300mm lens... which translates to 140-600mm (!) in full-frame terms. The only problem here is that you'd need at least one more lens - even Olympus's 14-42mm kit lens - for use in most indoor or tight situations. $323 for the 70-300:

The E-620 (body only) is available for $492:

And with the 14-42mm kit lens for $567:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=607500&is=REG

The E-620 body only and the 18-180mm lens would run $891 together. So you can see how this could get expensive fairly quickly. But that would still be a nice package if you insisted on a one-lens solution. If you decided later that you liked working with a DSLR, you could add other lenses for special uses - one at a time.

You can get an adapter to go from 4/3 to m4/3, BUT you cannot go the other way. A micro 4/3 won't be anythng other than micro 4/3 because of a VERY short registration distance.

I know, I address my mistake already in an earlier post.
