Re: Question about Panasonic Lumix G Vario 100-300mm F4-5.6 OIS

Pavinder, I use the Panasonic 100-300 extensively for my animal photography and I find it to be excellent. For the subject matter, I don't feel there is necessarily any advantage to having a fast aperture given the considerable magnification of this lens. I've written about it quite a lot on my Blog, but I was out with it today shooting some birds:

I really don't see the point of waiting to see if a totally different incarnation of something is going to appear, particularly when there is no evidence or argument in favour of it. If I were you I would just go and buy whatever you need or fancy, and enjoy it.

However, if you don't need quite so much reach but still want a fast aperture then the 35-100 takes some beating. I am also a big fan of the 40-150R, for light weight, small size, and optical quality it's a marvel.
