suggestions on a new lens

Panasonic H-fs045200e Lumix G Vario 45-200mm F4-5.6 ASPH Mega O.I.S Lens

this is what I have now and I wonder if I can get somethiing that is bigger and lets me get more distance

I find I just cannot get that close to some wild life and to get better night shots

I am broke now but if I can work out what I need I can save up

thanks

Re: suggestions on a new lens

This looks like you have a four thirds system camera. Not too familiar with this system, but I think that it was developed by Panasonic and Olympus and as far as I know the cameras and lenses are designed to mix and match with each other. Also third party brands such as Sigma and Tamron also make lenses that will fit.

I found this on a Google search

Panasonic Lumix G 100-300mm f4-5.6

Specifications

Focal length: 100-300mm
Aperture: f4-5.6
Lens mount: MFT
Equiv: 200-600mm
Anti-shake: Yes
Closest focus: 150cm
Filter thread: 67mm
Hood: Included
Optics: 17 el. / 12 groups
Diaphragm blades: 7
Weather-sealed: No
Weight: 520g
Size: 74x126mm

If you need to get close to really small and distant subjects, there's two choices in the Micro Four Thirds catalogue: Panasonic's Lumix G 100-300mm f4-5.6 and the Olympus M Zuiko Digital 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 II. Both zoom-into an equivalent of 600mm, but the Panasonic features a brighter focal ratio throughout the range and optical stabilization which may be redundant for Olympus body owners, but is essential on Panasonic models at these magnifications. The trump card of the Panasonic is a cheaper price at the time of writing which makes it my recommended choice for those who want a really long lens for their Micro Four Thirds body. Once again though, don't expect miracles with moving subjects.

Don't know how old this is though, so there might be more choice now, like this Sigma 50-500 The Sigma four thirds lenses are designated DN.

APO 50-500mm F4-6.3 EX DG HSM for Four Thirds Mount

This versatile 10x high zoom ratio lens designed specifically for the digital imaging and it covers the wide range of the focal lengths. This lens uses SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass for correction of color aberration, and seven-group zoom system provides a high magnification throughout the entire zoom range. Super multi coating reduces flare and ghost. The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) system provides quiet high-speed auto-focus shooting, as well as full-time manual focus.

* With Four-Thirds cameras, the angle of view will be equivalent to 100-1000mm.
Specifications

Mount Type :Four Thirds
Minimum Aperture :F22
Lens Construction :20 Elements in 16 Groups
Angle of View :24.4-2.5
Number of Diaphragm Blades :9pcs
Minimum Focusing Distance :100-300cm (39.37”-118.11”)
Maximum Magnification :1:5.2
Filter Size :86mm
Lens Hood :Petal Hood
Dimensions : Diameter 95mm (3.7”)X Length 223.9mm (8.8”)
Weight :1830g / 64.5oz

Looks like this one is the longest available for your camera - presuming you have a four thirds system camera.
