M43 300 2.8 and 40-150 f2.8
2 months ago

I was disappointed when I learned that Oly was planning on coming out with the M43 300 f4.

i would want to utilize it with a 2x converter whenever that would be released.  A 600mm f8 is not that attractive to me.  5.6 would be fine.

Would it be possible to design  a M43 300  F2.8  that would be smaller than the 43 300 2.8, or would it be close to the same size and weight anyway?

Even the  40-150 f2.8  becomes a 210  F4 with the upcoming 1.4 tc,  and a 300 f5.6 with a 2x TC.

I guess the cause of my blabbering is that I keep asking myself why I would buy these rather than just utilizing my current kit with the two TCs and my 43 50-200?  When I really want  more range and quality I'll just have to deal with the weight and size of the 90-250, but there goes the compactness of my kit.
