Size comparison photo of Olympus Pro 12-40, 7-14, 40-150 and 300, plus Pan 35-100

Can be seen here on 43Rumors:

http://www.43rumors.com/the-big-olympus-pro-lens-size-comparison/

Reference lengths in inches (first two converted to inches from 43Rumors photo, last four are from SLRGear):

  • Pro 40-150mm f2.8 approx. 6.7"
  • Pro 300mm f4 approx. 8.5"
  • Current 40-150mm f4-5.6 = 3.3"
  • 75-300mm MkII f4.8-6.7 = 4.6"
  • 4/3's HG 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 = 6.2"
  • 4/3's SHG 300mm f2.8 = 11.1" (and $7,000)

Obviously there's no comparison in terms of performance of the upcoming Pro lenses to the 40-150mm f4-5.6 and 75-300mm MkII f4.8-6.7, but I found it interesting that the excellent 4/3's 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 appears to be shorter than the Pro 40-150mm f2.8. For E-M1 owners with its on-sensor PDAF, this will make for an interesting buying decision.

And here's a photo going in the opposite direction size-wise from ePhotozine of Panasonic's upcoming diminutive 35-100mm lens designed for the GM1. Looks to be about 2.5" long (anyone with actual dimensions, these would be appreciated), and I'm sure it will find its way onto many PEN's and E-M10's.

Basically, something for everybody as these two manufacturers continue to develop a compelling range of mFT lenses for different users and purposes.
