Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 - FM Forums
An Oly 40-150mm 2.8 would be a dream lens for me on M43! I'd definitely pay a premium for that.
An Oly 40-150/2.8 would be nice, but until they confirm the following questions, I'd stick with the 35-100/2.8, which you can enjoy now, rather than waiting till some time next year:
- is it weather-sealed?
- how big is it?
- is it internal zooming and focusing like the 35-100?
- are the optical qualities better than the 35-100?
- how much does it cost?
IMHO, Panasonic has done pretty well with the 35-100, setting the bar pretty high. If Olympus can top it (which I am really hoping, especially in terms of optical qualities), it would be one incredible zoom lens!
Personally I am hoping it's actually 2.8-4.0 and compact, rather than constant and monstrous.
While we are at it, I actually would've preferred a m4/3 version of the Zuiko 50-200/2.8-3.5 SWD. Just half the size of the 4/3 version would've been great!
Yeah... a 40-150 f/2.8 will be something to lust for, if its quality is in the ballpark as the two recent panny lenses. Weather seal should be a standard (I wish :tongue and internal zoom is a huge plus..
a 14-40 f2.8 makes perfect sense, Olympus can't relese a 12-40 f2.8 as it would kill 12 f2 sales
BTW, I find a 300 f4 pretty useless unless used for birding and even for birding I find the 75-300 more suitable as it has great IQ even at 250mm and is far more flexible
I don't think the little buddy is telling the truth. Can't see how a 300mm f/4 could be that short.
They didn't say if the 75-300 was extended to the 300mm length
