But is the "200/2.8" a Zuiko either?

Patrick, some of us on the List (well at least 2!) like the little, light
35-70/3.5~4.5 which also has a "Close Focus" setting.  It may not have the
performance numbers of the 35-70/3.6, but it works well and is compact
enough to go anywhere!  I have shunned mine for some months now, since I'm
on a small prime jag at present (40/2).
