It nonetheless IS a F2 lens.

I actually have a f1.2 zoom that covers normal-short tele... but the image circle (Super8) leaves a few photons out of the equation. Considering it is fully 1.5 stops faster than the Olympus (or 3.5 stops faster than Canon's 70-200/4), Kodak must have been insane to charge as little as they did. Canon's own $6000 200/2 would then be the outlier... well, either that or simply scaling price with aperture (irrespective of focal length) is something peculiar to Olympus.
