The one in my hand reads "Olympus OM-System Zuiko Auto-Zoom 1:4 f=75~150mm
400793".  It is not an S Zuiko, and is not MC as far as I can tell. As far
as design and build quality are concerned, it seems on a par with other
Zuiko lenses, and is certainly not the same trombone design as the S Zuiko
There is definitely clearance inside the hood for a polarizing filter.  Use
would require focusing, filter alignment and finally hood extension.

I don't think the 75-150 was designated an "S" Zuiko. The 100-200/5 was,
though, as were the two Cosina zooms released with the OM2000.
