Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 HD OIS Lens

A new Panasonic Micro Four Thirds lens spilled out onto the interweb this week ahead of its official unveiling.  The Panasonic Lumix G Vario 45-150mm f/4-5.6 HD OIS lens should be along soon – with the HD emblem suggesting that this lens will be optimized for silent video operation like the classic HD 14-140mm f/4-5.8 lens.

Perhaps this is a replacement for the current 45-200mm f/4-5.6 OIS non-HD lens, or just a video-optimized version to complement the line-up?
