    Just received an Email from Jessops (UK) announcing the pre order availability for the Panasonic Leica 100 - 400 at £1349
    Panasonic 100-400mm f/4.0-6.3 Lens - Jessops - Lenses
    Pleasantly surprised at the price - may steal a few sales from the Olympus 300 pro ?
    Regards

    In the States the P/L 100-400 is $1799 and the Olympus 300 Pro is $2499. You can start pre ordering from Amazon (watch for State tax to be added), Adorama, and B&H. These lenses will be shipping in March and April.

    That's a great price I think to start

    The flexibility of this lens is great for all types of stuff...if the IQ is top notch. I could see me going for this over the 300 if IQ on par

    Can't wait to see some examples

    I agree! The launch price is around £300-£400 cheaper than I thought it would be. If the lens can deliver on IQ and performance, then this is most definitely the lens I would go for between it and the Olympus 300mm f4 prime. I for one would certainly trade some outright IQ that the 300mm f4 sounds like it will bring for the longer reach and flexibility of the Panny zoom.

    Cheers,

    Simon.
