    I'd even settle for an 18mm since we don't have one of those yet.... :)

    Sweet, another thread where we can post what we hope the new Leica prime lens will be.

    Looks like we're getting a 12mm PanaLeica wide angle. Oh well!

    I hope its f0.4 so we can get really good subject isolation ... even if the front is 30cm in diameter

    I knew it was rumored to be a prime... but deep in my heart I was still hoping for a weather sealed 8-17 zoom that took filters 72mm or smaller. =[

    anyway @tkbslc@tkbslc you seem to have also given away the pre-production form of the GH5 in full frame too !

    At $160,000, I don't think I'd be taking it anywhere...

    I'd love to pull it out whenever I go somewhere, and encounter a retired guy with a Canon DSLR and a huge, HUGE white lens and condescending attitude.

    The G-Series always seems to fly under the radar. I'm guessing we'll see the G-7 become the new bargain deal of m43 if a G-8 comes out soon.

    Haha, wouldn't it only need to be 30mm in diameter (in theory, anyway)?

    30cm is 300mm, and 300mm/.04= 7500mm aperture opening at max aperture value. In theory.

    It's true.

    And the rumoured 7500mm/f0.004 would need a 1.875 km aperture. Sounds like that patent may never be realized in production.

    Our dreams of intergalactic observation are foiled again...

    The 7500mm f/0.4 would be perfect for a safari trip... shot from the east coast of the United States. But I'm not going to buy it unless it's a pancake, weighs less than 200g, and costs less than $500...
