I agree. It's interesting and worth mentioning, however, that back in the 4/3 (not m4/3) days when I had my E-520, I routinely used the consumer-grade Oly 70-300 lens (rumored to be made by Sigma) WITH an Oly 1.4x teleconverter. So they were compatible. I have upped my expectations since then and don't know if I could stand the IQ of a consumer-grade lens with even a 1.4 TC, but it would be nice to have the option with the 100-400.I think I can be confident in saying it won't be compatible with a TC. That would be reserved for use with Pro lenses only.
Someone else wondered whether they would discontinue the 75-300. I doubt it VERY much. There is a place for both a 75-300 and a 100-400, IMHO. I do think they might come out with a 75-300 with IS. I mean, it's already kind of a pricey lens for standard grade, so it could stand an upgrade to IS, I think.
