To be honest, I would rather see a 100-400mm lens as others have suggested. 85-300mm is too close a focal range to the already existent 55-200mm and 50-230mm.

However, if I read the patent description right, the lens is suppose to keep up the maximum apperture of F2.7 zoomed in at least until 180mm. This basically makes it a fast portrait zoom and a 300mm F4 prime all in one. If it's not more than twice as heavy as the 55-200mm this could be a very interesting option.

And because I use such long FLs only occassionally, I'd rather buy this lens than a DSLR-system where I need to not only shell out for a lens but for an extra camera as well. TO each his own, I guess.

Best,

Mike
