    I'm afraid I didnt see tripod collar in Panasonic 100-300mm mockup... I think we need one. I doubt a light camera such G1 or GH1 (not to mention GF1) will be nicely balanced without tripod collar at 600mm equiv. range.

    I agree... unless the IS works amazingly well....

    Ditto - handholding even with IS and light weight will still be problematic.

    I don't know what the weight of the lens will be but I would think it must be getting close to sufficent to warrant a collar, especially if the lens is a little on the longer side.
