Wow, that's some close focusing on the 43. Or is it a 42.5?
I think Panasonic can't make up their mind. Personally they should just round it off and make it 43mm!
I think that the focal length is 42.5, but the marking is 43.
Yeah, keep it at 43 please. Does half a millimeter really matter that much?
Also: I WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I better start saving up.
Don't believe the markings for now. They just put that temporary. impossible to have a close focusing distance of 0.0.... hehe. It means they are still in development and not set in stones yet. I'm so eager to see the price and performances of the 150mm f/2.8.
Looks to be the hugest m43 lens yet (or is it as big as the Panny 100-300, can't tell since I never owned that lens). But is that with a hood or without?
Wow, it's almost like the MFT consortium are deliberately copying the best lenses from Pentax. First the 75mm, which can compete with the FA77 Limited for rendering (different quality, though both amazing). And now they are actually releasing a 43mm lens! Likely not a patch on the FA 43 Limited, but likely also excellent in its own way.
That lens looks so nice. I hope this year M43 fleshes out the telephoto range since the wide end has pretty much been covered.
Also, that's a very sexy lens (the 150 especially).
Anybody know a ballpark price for the 150mm? It can't be more than $2,000 USD, can it?
If we take the 35-100 f/2.8 it should not exceed it price of 1500$ by much.
It might hit the 2000$ if Panasonic will decide that they can not produce allot of it.
I'm more concerned about its weight than price. If they can keep it around 500g, I'll be interested.
Definitely agree about 1.4x and 2x extenders. They make investing in lenses like the 150 f2.8 and the extant 35-100 much more attractive
I really like my 45mm but a faster 43 would be a huge temptation - if it is as sharp and if I can afford it. Otherwise, I'll keep saving for a 75mm.
Damn, I hate these kind of news, moths before they are available, with only speculation on price and optical performance... I hate to wait, that's the little boy in me seeking... Long live :43:
The 43 is really nice, but i'm not sure i need that level of DoF control. That 150, OTOH, would be so nice to have. I'm predicting $1200.
And the Four Thirds Olympus 150mm ƒ2.0 is $2500 USD.....
probably will be right around there.
the 43 probably around 1200
Thanks, you gave me reference, the Olympus 35-100mm f/2.0 ED Zuiko Digital Zoom Lens costs 2500 while the P35-100 costs 1500$. If you take this as an example the new P150 F/2.8 should cost 1500$.
