Re: Hands On Preview at Imaging Resource.com - doesn't help.
In reply to John McCormack, Jul 18, 2013

OK, but it doesn't answer the real question: the new lens starts at f2.8. Great. But it is common for zoom lenses to stop down VERY quickly. It wouldn't surprise me to find that the maximum aperture is down to f5 by the 100mm equivalent. Unfortunately, it is VERY hard to find data on maximum aperture vs. focal length - the only real way I've found it in the fast is to get my hands on one and test the maximum aperture at a range for zoom settings.
