I have a Panasonic G3 with the 14-42mm kit lens. I am now looking for a second lens and would like to start with a longer kit-zoom. Something to go from around my kit lens' 42mm up to the 150mm kind of length.
In this range, I was thinking of getting the Olympus Digital Zuiko 40-150mm f/4-5.6 due to budget (I'm not looking for quality glass just yet. I'd rather focus on technique before spending more than I have to on equipment I won't use to its full potential).
I understand that Panasonic put their IS in the lens and Olympus put it in the body, so if I put an Olympus lens on my Panasonic body then I won't have any IS. How much of a problem will this be? Does the in-lens IS from buying a Panasonic lens really make a large difference in this focal length range?
