I can't tell about the Zuiko 200/5 lens, but I do own a Zuiko 200/4 and I can
assure you it is a very fine lens indeed. It does not feel big or bulky at all,
in fact it is actually smaller in your hand than you think and I am pretty sure
you would not regret buying that lens even though it has a 55 mm thread.
