Long Lens --- How much would you pay?
4 months ago

There have been numerous threads and comments here by people desiring a longer prime lens for wildlife, especially bird photography.  I don't know if Olympus or Panasonic read this forum, but if they do, perhaps if enough of us are willing to pay the necessary price, they might consider it.

I personally would gladly pay $1,500 - $2,000 for a 300mm f4.0 or 400mm f5.6.  These are similar prices that Canon and Nikon charge for such lenses.

I would I pay this price because I would then be able to sell all my Canon gear, including a 500mm f4.5 (non IS) and 100-400mm zoom.  This would reduce my camera bag weight substantially and make bird photography more enjoyable.
