- Real Name
Plenty of time to consider anyway. Can't seem to find anyone that actually has it. I pre-ordered it and was told Sep-8 release... still waiting. Once again the Aussie version is made out of unobtanium... the rarest element in the universe. If only they made them from stupidium, there's always lots of that to go round!Looking forward to your thoughts after you have been using it for awhile.
This is still on my radar, but I must admit the lack of sync IS is a worry for me. For what I was thinking of getting it for [birding] a few seconds to steady could lead to a lot of missed oportunitues. I only tried the G9 with the Panasonic 100-400 once for a few hours but from memory the dual IS worked really well and I would hate to go backwards from that combo.
If you could give some thoughts on the stabilization compared to the others you have used after you have used it for awhile it would be good. You are the only one who I can think of that has used a lot of tele zooms from a few systems to be really able to compare this lens to the opposition.
