so i see on one of the m43 rumors that the 300mm will cost 2600 euros. yes, that's just a rumor and even if it's true, i assume that must be the suggested retail price so street price would probably be somewhere around 1600-2000. i also assume olympus would sell the lens for the same price in dollars rather than converting euros to dollars...so 2600 euros would be 2600 dollars. BUT...what if 2600 is the price? do you think the lens will sell at that price? or maybe the question is, how many does olympus expect to sell at that price? if that pricing is accurate, it seems pretty outrageous to me, like planning to fail. and i'm someone who doesn't mind spending more on great gear. but this pricing starts to eat away at the price advantage of m43. size is a non-issue since anyone looking for a lens like this has to expect size and weight unless they believe in magic. but m43 starts to make less sense when the gear is priced at the level of dx and used ff lenses. and in terms of product success, given how small the m43 market is i don't think offering m43 as a straight up alternative (i.e. equally priced as dx, for example) to dx or maybe used ff--that seems like a recipe for failure. and this is coming from someone who bought the 75mm new. i'm not opposed to dropping a lot of money on a m43 lens (even on a focal length w/ limited usability). anyway. what do y'all think?
