Hansplast26: I think this lens is overpriced (like many nikon lenses), yet it will sure sell like hot cakes. For a fraction of the price you get the very decent Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6, for field work this lens will do just great.
I'd recommend you to read the photozone.de review of the Tamron lens. and as said, for field work it will be enough for most people.Personally for an F/4 lens i would not spend so much money. a typical example of an over hyped product.

Donnie G: Why do an apples vs oranges comparison between a DSLR and a mirrorless camera when you could just as easily have compared Canon's new hybrid sensor tech against the tech available in its competitor's DSLRs? When you do that side by side autofocus speed test for video capture, then I'll sit up and take notice.
99% of the people do not know the difference between the AF systems. for them it is just AF, and thats how actually anyone else should look at it too. AF is AF and it should be fast, accurate and ideally allow focusing on moving objects
It shows that Panasonic contrast detection AF is leaps ahead of Canon AF (despite that they use a hybrid AF system).
photo perzon: Interested to see if a single black unit develops sticky blades
maybe the black paint causes the body to get warmer and the grease to drip onto the blades and becoming sticky. possibly the sensor will produce more noise as well.
