But a 1-inch sensor at 400mm cropped to 600mm equivalent could still give you better output!

I have my doubts that the lens will be sharp enough at full tele to pull off that sort of crop and come out in front in terms of detail resolution.

Seeing how sharp my 14-140mm II is at 140mm, I can tell you that Panasonic has really improved their lenses thanks to all those special coatings and different pieces of glass types used.

If they use two ED elements at the front end (like they did with 14-140II, that non-detachable lens will be a stellar performer!

My 75-300mm m43 lens certainly can't get out in front with a crop like that.

There are situations my Pana 100-300 can. Depends.
