    Hi all,

    This lens is crazy. It's enormous (almost comically so), it's has the largest filter I've ever seen (82mm!), and it's S-H-A-R-P from end to end, wide-open.

    I've never used anything quite like it.

    I've included multiple pictures and a full size sample from my GH1 taken at ISO200, 30mm, f/2.8 so you can see just how incredibly sharp this thing is.

    Link to full resolution (untouched) JPEG

    Price is $200 (BIIIG PRICE DROP!) obo shipped and PP'd.

    Can you post it with the camera attached to it? Would love to see how big it really is. No collar, huh?

    I'll grab a cell phone shot when I get home. It's certainly not something you'd just walk around with, but mounted on a tripod it actually has great focus zoom mechanics.

    Here's the dimensions:

    Focal length: 35-100mm
    Aperture range: f/2.8-16, AE
    Focusing range: 0.27m – infinity at 35mm; 1m – infinity at 100mm
    Angle of view: 63 – 24 degrees diagonal
    Construction: 15 elements in 10 groups
    Filter thread: 82mm
    Length: 140mm
    Weight: 1090g

    Holy crap.

    Hey..that could work as a substitute for the upcoming Panasonic x zoom..though no AF and "a bit" heavier.
