When Oly made a 300 2.8 for the 4/3 system the price was almost twice as high as the 300 2.8s from Nikon and Canon, because Oly claimed it should be compared to a 600 mm.

That is indeed the only thing that galls me, the price of the SHG and some of the m43 lenses. I coughed up for the 12-60 as it still is quite unique in its capabilities (I know there is a Nikon "equivalent").

The whole package (camera + lens) will still be smaller (even if it's not that much), and that is what counts for me (don't care about weight). Ask all those who are waiting since I do not know when for a fullframe sensor in an OM-D to K-5 sized body.

And please nobody starts that "not-able-to-be-shooting-a-large-lens-on-small-body-with-one-hand"-argument again.

Cheers
