Re: Scaled back design from patent

At this price, this lens better be as good as the Canon 70-300L. Otherwise it is priced out of the of the competition (55-300VR with FT-1, Pana 100-300, Oly 75-300).

The MTF at the tele end doesn't seem to look promising though.

It is a bit smaller and lighter than the DX 55-300VR, but not so much. Native AF will be better, but I consider that a restriction of the FT-1, not a particular advantage of this lens.
