Re: Rumor: Panasonic 45-300mm HD OIS

Fast, Good, Inexpensive

Choose two, at most.

It's very difficult to make a lens that provides high quality over that wide a zoom range. Not impossible, but difficult means expensive. Ditto speed. The faster the lens is, the more expensive it's going to be to make.

My guess is it will be slow, of reasonable quality but no more, and still pretty expensive.

Now then, a fast 12-50 or so is a lens I could really get behind, even at a fairly high price.
