Why no fast longer tele lenses or telezoom lenses for N1?
Jul 10, 2013

Yes there is the FT1 which is great but it also means the camera as a whole becomes bigger than it needs to be. I bought the 55-200 dx yesterday to use with my V1. And while I am happy with it I cannot help thinking it could have been a faster lens had it been designed for the N1.

What size would a 150-500 F4 or a 400 F2.8 be if designed for the N1?

It seems to me that if the bridgecameras have 25-600 F2.8 and full frame lenses are 600 F4 etc there should be fast teles or zooms for N1 and m4/3.

I mean it is great that they came out with the wide angle zoom but I would have preferred a longer faster tele zoom.
