    I'm really looking forward to seeing the results with this lens on an Oly body. I hope they are good as I want one!

    does the tripod ring have a mount or does it also require a plate to mount to the ball head.

    And not for us Olympus users? What's up with that? ;)

    It looks like it needs a plate :-(

    I never said that. You can obviously chose to use anything you like. The GX8 owners get the added benefit of dual IS. I am happy for them.

    And they said that about the 300 Pro and charged my wife's credit. Not. Stick with Adorama, B&H or other known reliable merchant.

    One of my friends was in a meeting with me this morning. Then he was headed off to Showcase Camera to pick up his PL 100-400. So shipments should be arriving at all their regular dealers.

    I read that Park Cameras shipped at least one in the UK, not sure whether I read that here or elsewhere. I have had a pre-order in since the 8th January at a small local store and whoever deals with that side of things at or for Panasonic aren't even answering their calls. When did you order yours with Amazon?
     
  12. Thanks. Yeah I heard that Park would be shipping in dribs n drabs as they got them from Panasonic in dribs n drabs.

    I ordered mine only a couple of weeks or so ago so I guess I'm way down the pecking order. But if I sniff one available earlier, I'll cancel the Amazon order.
