You are right Asher.
The lens will be available some time soon and I just may get one, to use on my Panasonic GX7 or on my recently bought Olympus 5 Mark II.

What made - better: What is making me - to consider this lens instead of the Olympus M Zuiko Digital 40-150 f/2.8 lens are a couple of reasons and among them is the weight !

Olympus M Zuiko Digital 40-150 f/2.8 lens weights 760 gr / 880 gr with colar, while the
Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 50-200 mm f/2.8-4.0 is just 655 gr

Both are - I am sure - pretty good lens. The other day I shot with the Panasonic Leica 42.5mm f/1.2 and I was - again - surprized by the excellent quality of the image. See below, IYP @ f1.2

The label Leica made me read about their cooperation with Panasonic. I hope, the zoom will have a special "je ne sais pas quoi" which differentiates it from the rest of the lens.
